Alta Loma School District to Close Campuses for Rest of School Year
The Alta Loma School District, in alignment with San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools Ted Alejandre and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, and for the safety of all concerned because of the coronavirus outbreak, will close school campuses for the remainder of the school year.
ALSD schools will continue to provide online distance education through the end of regularly scheduled school year, which runs through May 22.
“These are some of the most challenging times we have gone through as a school community, but I am confident that together we will overcome any obstacles we face,” said Alta Loma School District Superintendent James Moore in a letter to ALSD families. “Our continued patience, compassion and empathy for each other will be needed now more than ever, as we face the reality that students will not be able to finish the school year in a traditional setting with their classmates, teachers and friends.”
Moore encouraged families to support the distance learning opportunities that the ALSD schools provide online, so that students will be able to continue to prepare for the next grade level. He also noted that teachers may be contact through email and other means.
“The most important thing is that people take care of themselves and their families by practicing social distancing, avoiding public places and limiting contact with others so that together we can all prevent the spread of this virus,” Moore said.
