Hello Amazing Families,

 Sending you our virtual love!
We are writing to inform you that CLCS is extending temporary school closures through May 1, 2020. Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara County schools, along with the Alameda Unified School District, made the decision to extend closures for the health of the Bay Area. Families need to continue to shelter in place and continue to follow the guidance provided by Public Health Officers to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
  • Staying home to save lives
  • Washing hands often with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Contacting your healthcare provider if you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. 

Our team will continue to facilitate our Distance Learning plan and appreciate the feedback that families have provided. For our 6-12 programs Distance Learning grades are being stored in a separate grade book. All grades are visible online. At the end of the suspension of in-class instruction, Distance Learning grades will be averaged into learners second semester grade. If you or your learner are experiencing difficulty with access to course materials or with turning in assignments, please contact your facilitator or the ACLC/Nea main office so that we can support you with an alternative plan.

AUSD is continuing to provide free meals to learners and families, offering a variety of meal options. They are serving two days a week and providing multiple meals for families to take home per the following:

Tuesdays & Fridays 11am—1pm
📍 Wood Middle School
📍 Erhardt Elementary School
📍 Alameda Point Collaborative 

Building on the regional coordination that six Bay Area jurisdictions took on March 16, 2020 in issuing the Health Officer order for all residents to shelter in place, Bay Area counties have been working together to align strategies and practices during this unprecedented time for public education. 

If you have questions or concerns please contact your Lead Facilitators, Theresa or me for support.

We will continue to work to keep you informed as we anticipate that on-site operations may not return to normal before the end of the school year. Thank you for your flexibility and dedication to our youth and program during this time.
