This is your Superintendent, Spencer Holtom from Oroville City Elementary School District. After consultation with the Butte County Office of Education, we have decided to close schools starting tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020.
We are doing this 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. This closure includes Sierra Del Oro Preschool, Stanford Avenue Elementary, Ophir Elementary, Oakdale Heights Elementary, Wyandotte Academy, Central Middle School, and Ishi Hills Middle School.
We are currently planning to reopen schools on Monday, March 30, 2020, but this could be extended.
We encourage families and staff to watch our website for updates and refrain from activities that can lead to the spread of the Coronavirus. Please follow the guidelines set out by the Center for Disease Control to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Staff member, we will also be sending out additional information and further directions for you this evening by phone and email.
Families with students, please keep safe during this trying time and we will continue to update our website with the latest information.
