VICTORVILLE, Calif. — After consulting with county health and education officials, the Victor Valley Union High School District will extend the closure of its campuses until at least May 4, 2020. The district will continually evaluate the situation to determine if a longer closure is necessary.
This decision is a result of the national and state emergency caused by the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. Neighboring school districts are also closing during this period, and the closure is supported by the San Bernardino County Public Health Department and the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools.
Distance learning will be provided to students beginning March 30, after our regularly scheduled Spring Break. Students will be contacted by staff to begin their distance learning courses, and staff will continue to make sure students are on track for graduation.
Meal pickup will resume March 30 from 10 a.m. to noon each weekday at all district schools except Goodwill. All students are eligible to pick up meals at any of our schools.
All extracurricular activities previously scheduled for this time period will be postponed indefinitely.
Superintendent Dr. Ron Williams and our administrative team are meeting daily to assess this ever-changing situation.
We will continue to provide regular updates via our website at www.vvuhsd.org, and staff will be updated via district email.
We understand this is a challenging and uncertain time for our community. Our staff is committed to keeping our students safe while continuing to provide them with a high-quality education. Thank you.
