Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Parent Resources
Wornick has transitioned to remote learning as of March 13, 2020 through the end of the school year on June 4, 2020.
As we are seeing in the news, the landscape around the coronavirus (COVID-19) is developing quickly. With this in mind, we are providing this page as a resource to our families so that you can easily find previous email updates, status of events, and helpful resources on status updates, as well as speaking with your children. For updates related to Remote Learning, please visit our Remote Learning at Wornick page.
On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, we made the difficult decision to transition to remote learning beginning Friday, March 13 and going through Wednesday, March 25. On Friday, March 13, the San Mateo County Health Officer, Scott Morrow, issued a School Operations Modification Order, requiring all schools in the county to dismiss students from regular attendance beginning March 16 through April 3. On March 31, San Mateo County Health Officer, issued an extension of the current Shelter in Place order through May 3, 2020 (extended through May 31). On April 7, we received a notice from public officials at the County of San Mateo about extended campus closures for the remainder of the school year. We were of course saddened to receive this notification from the County of San Mateo. We have no choice but to comply with the mandate to continue with remote learning through the rest of the school year. While disappointing, we trust that we all understand that we need to do everything we can to ensure the safety and health of our loved ones and the larger community during these times.
Please continue to notify firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you have been exposed to Coronavirus, have had contact with someone who has been exposed to Coronavirus, or have tested positive. We want to support your family.
Shelter in Place Order in Effect in San Mateo County
San Mateo County Health Officer issued a Shelter in Place Order on March 16, 2020, and extended that order on March 31. Shelter in Place is currently in effect through May 31, 2020. He is recommending you shelter in place at your homes, leaving them only for essential work, medical care (preferably access medical care through phone or online services), groceries and pharmacy. These are measures that have been implemented in other countries and will have an effect of slowing down this virus. We urge all of our families to do their part and comply with this order.
