Santa Rosa High School July 08On March, 25, The Sonoma County Office of Education recommended that school districts across the county shut down in-person classes until at least May 1.  This guidance was based on consultation with the Sonoma County Health Officer, Dr. Sundari Mase.  Governor Gavin Newsom said in a press conference on Tuesday, March 17 that it is likely California schools will remain closed for the duration of the school year.  

For now, Sonoma County schools are preparing for distance learning until at least May 1.

“The goal is to get students back into the classroom as soon as it is considered safe to do so,” said Dr. Herrington. “While difficult for working parents, school closures are necessary at this time to protect the health of students, staff, and family members with compromised immune systems.”

The Sonoma County Office of Education has coordinated  “grab-and-go" meal distribution sites for students to pick up lunch.
