Dear Elk Grove Unified Families,

We continue to navigate fast moving waters as we follow updates related to the threat of the COVID-19 virus. We are focusing on student and family support services and resources parents can access given national, state and county guidelines of social distancing and isolation. Below is an overview of implemented, active and planned tasks that EGUSD teams are focused on:

IMPLEMENTED

Food and Nutrition Team

      • Continue to provide daily drive-thru meals available for pick-up at select locations throughout EGUSD at 20 sites. Students aged 18 and under are eligible to receive these state and USDA approved drive-thru, grab-n-go meals.
      • Plans are in the works to expand this drive-thru, grab-n-go service at more sites.

Before and After School Daycare Team

      • Collaborating with daycare providers open at 21 select sites who are offering services for parents who meet national, state and/or county essential service criteria during this national, state and county emergency.

ACTIVE

Broadcast and Technology Team

      • Coordinating communications resources to establish a Districtwide broadcast hour with an established production team who will develop content.

PLANNED

Education Services Team

      • Will work with teachers, counselors and secondary students to successfully complete the 3rd Term. The team is carefully reviewing any grade-related issues that will need to be addressed.
      • Will continue to collaborate with Special Education experts and government officials to develop support for students with special education needs.

Distance Learning/Continuing Education Team

      • Will continue to coordinate resources and collaborate with educational partners for Distance Learning at elementary, middle and high school levels when public education providers are given federal, state and county guidance and guidelines.

Because all EGUSD schools are closed, any EGUSD initiated, prepared or planned formalized learning services or lesson plans are on hold during this closure period. 

Please stay tuned for our ongoing daily communications and we continue to ask that all residents pay attention to the State’s direction to adhere to social distancing measures and self-isolation if symptomatic of the COVID-19 virus.

Thank you,
EGUSD Leadership
