Though it has not been confirmed yet but Governor Gavin made an announcement yesterday afternoon that California public schools will likely remain closed for the rest of the school year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Los Angeles Times reports the governor shared the news in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. “Don’t anticipate schools are going to open up in a week. Please don’t anticipate in a few weeks,” Newsom said. “I would plan, and assume, that it’s unlikely that many of these schools—few, if any—will open before the summer break.” The governor noted that his administration is working on ways to ensure students are still getting an education. ”We wanted to make sure that learning is still occurring. Distance learning. Online learning,” Newsom said.
They’re also focused on making sure students get the meals and other services they need.
