We will continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, San Luis Obispo County Department of Public Health, and California Department of Public Health as it relates to the situation surrounding COVID-19. We remain committed to prioritizing the safety and security of our children, staff, community members, and facilities.
