We understand there are questions circulating related to evolving public health news. This message is intended to clarify what it means for our upcoming school play, Peter Pan Jr., which is scheduled to take place this Thursday-Saturday, March 12th-14th.
The Valle Verde PTA holds the health of our Valle Verde families and community in highest priority. After reviewing the current recommendations from the CDC, the California Department of Public Health, and the Mount Diablo School District, we have determined we will follow the lead of our school in responding to concerns regarding COVID-19 (also known as “corona virus”).
At this time, Valle Verde plans to remain open until further notice, and as such, we will proceed with our school play as scheduled. We are taking the following precautions to minimize any risk to Valle Verde families:
- We ask anyone who is experiencing a fever to stay home until he or she has been fever-free for a minimum of 24-hours, and anyone with flu-like symptoms (e.g. dry cough, body aches) should also stay home.
- We remind any ticket holders or event staff who have traveled within the past 14 days to an area identified by the CDC as having a Level 3 Travel Health Notice due to COVID-19, as well as anyone who may be at higher risk of illness (e.g., due to age or a compromised immune system caused by an underlying condition or recent medical treatment) that you should not attend the event.
- There will be hand sanitizer stations near concessions and the entrance to the MUR.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will alert you if there is a need. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing all school play ticket holders to celebrate 20 years of school play tradition at Valle Verde, as well as the hard work put in by our students and volunteers to put on an amazing show.
As it relates to our Spring Fling Auction scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 28th, we are at this time moving ahead with the event as scheduled. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide an update as it gets closer to the event.
On behalf of the School Play Committee and the Valle Verde PTA Executive Board, thank you for your understanding and your continued support!
