Good evening,

This is a special message for OCESD staff. Please listen to the whole message.

Due to increased concern about the Coronavirus and Governor Newsom's latest directives about isolating people over 65 years old and those with chronic disease, we are closing all Oroville City Elementary School District schools starting tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020. We are currently planning to reopen schools on Monday, March 30, 2020, but this could be extended.

If you or a household member is 65 or older or suffering from a chronic disease, you do not need to come to work on either of the following staff days. If you are in this situation, please contact Tina Pickering at aesopclerk@ocesd.net and Shannon Ensminger at sensminger@ocesd.net

Monday, March 16, 2020, food services, health, custodial, site office staff including principals, office clerks and office managers, district office staff, warehouse, and maintenance staff need to come to work to prepare the schools for closure. Staff who were scheduled to attend the 3:15 planning meeting will need to come to the meeting. All other staff have this day off.

Wednesday, March 18, 2020. All staff need to plan on coming to work on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 for planning. We will have Governor Newsom's new directives for how we are expected to support students during the school closures.

Future work dates depend on what is planned on Monday and Wednesday.

Remember, you are not expected to report to work if you or someone in your household is 65 or older or suffering a chronic disease.

Please be safe and follow CDC guidelines as we work together to battle Coronavirus.
