CUSD Families, Staff, and Community,

As we continue to navigate the many changes brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic, our hope remains that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.

We previously shared that the earliest students would return to school is May 4. We now have further guidance and directives from State Superintendent of Instruction Tony Thurmond and Governor Gavin Newsom to keep schools closed through the end of the current school year. With this new information and an abundance of caution, the Ceres Unified School District, in cooperation with the Stanislaus County Office of Education and other Stanislaus County school districts, is taking a safety-first approach and immediate action to extend school closures through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, June 4, 2020.

We appreciate the incredible resilience with which CUSD students, families, and staff have responded to this ever-evolving situation, and want to assure you that the 2019-2020 school year is not over. Between now and spring break, we will provide additional information to facilitate the continued transition to distance learning instruction for the remainder of the school year. Please know that CUSD teachers, administrators, and staff are here to provide support throughout this crisis, and we will continue to work collaboratively and diligently to engage with students and parents and ensure students feel connected to school.

CUSD will also continue to:

  • Provide breakfast and lunch for students 18 and under (including limited locations during spring break; please see the schedule on our FAQ page)
  • Plan for high school graduation ceremonies, even if they must be rescheduled to a later date
  • Assist with school enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year
  • Update our website with additional resources and materials to support parents 

 

In the coming days and weeks, we will provide information regarding graduation, grades and transcripts, scholarships, and summer school.

We recognize that distance learning is not a perfect substitute for in-person learning, and that you will have many questions about the impact on students, families, and staff.  As we continue to make decisions that prioritize the health of our CUSD community and students’ learning needs within these extraordinary circumstances, please check for updates and resources here and through ParentSquare.

Although the extension of school closures and implementation of social distancing practices has created challenges and hardships, we know this is the most effective way to slow and disrupt the transmission of this pandemic. All of us as parents, teachers, district staff, administrators, and community members are facing these challenging times together. If students need support in managing their response to this crisis, please contact our Ceres Healthy Start Family Resource Center at (209) 556-1559 for access to mental health services.

Please be safe and take care of one another.
