All EUHSD Schools Closed Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice.
All decisions about reopening will be made in conjunction with state and local public health officials.
We will remain in close contact with the San Diego County Office of Education and local public health officials throughout the duration of this closure and will provide updates as appropriate. We encourage you to stay informed of the situation by regularly checking updates from San Diego County Public Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
We understand this is a time of uncertainty and concern. We will work through this together to keep our students, families, and staff safe. If you have health-related questions, please contact your medical professional. If you have questions about our schools or district status, please consult our District website for the latest updates at www.euhsd.org. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Nothing is more important than your health, safety, and the need to protect those most vulnerable to the coronavirus. Along with the temporary closure, we are taking multiple steps to minimize health risks to our teachers, staff, and students, including enhanced cleaning procedures in the school offices, classrooms, and facilities.
As new developments emerge regarding the coronavirus, we will share information with you about how we will operate safely and effectively at our school site. We understand these times can be challenging, and we are here to help.
To stay healthy
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash your hands with soap and water regularly.
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective.
- Try not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick (and keep sick children home).
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. If you use a tissue, wash your hands afterwards.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Infectious Diseases Specialist, Abdu Sharkawy states “We can all do our part in helping to prevent the spread of the virus. Temper fear with reason, panic with patience, and uncertainty with education. We have an opportunity to learn a great deal about health hygiene and limiting the spread of innumerable transmittable diseases in our society. Let's meet this challenge together in the best spirit of compassion for others, patience, and above all, an unfailing effort to seek truth, facts, and knowledge as opposed to conjecture, speculation and catastrophizing.
Facts not fear. Clean hands. Open hearts.
Our children will thank us for it.
"That's why we're asking every American to take personal responsibility to prevent that spread."
Stay safe, to keep others safe.
