VVUHSD decides to close schools amid coronavirus fears

VICTORVILLE, Calif. — Student health and safety are top priorities for the Victor Valley Union High School District. With this in mind, we have decided to close all VVUHSD schools, effective Monday, March 16, 2020. Classes are scheduled to resume on March 30, 2020. 

This closure is for precautionary reasons, as there are currently no known cases of COVID-19 in our district. These measures are to help slow the progression of the virus and protect our students, staff, and community.  

Saturday schools, athletics, and all extracurricular activities are included as part of this closure. 

We will provide more information for students, staff, and families on our plan to provide learning opportunities during the closure. The Educational Services team is preparing both digital and non-digital lessons to support students who have internet access at home and those who do not.  

Nutritional Services will provide an opportunity for families to receive school meals beginning Tuesday, March 17, but no meals will be served during our regularly scheduled Spring Break from March 23 through March 28.  

We will also communicate all other contingencies related to staffing and district business. Our services for special education students will be suspended during the closure, and like other services, will be evaluated moving forward.

All updates will be posted on our website under the “Recent News” section. You will also find important student and parent surveys there. Please take these surveys so we can better meet your educational needs during the closure. 

Any decisions to keep the closures in place beyond March 30 will be made on a weekly basis. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to keep our community safe.
