The safety and wellness of students, families, and school personnel are the highest priorities of all Amador County Public Schools. We will continue to communicate with Amador County Public Health Officer Dr. Kerr and follow directives given. Schools are currently closed until further notice.
We will continue to communicate and collaborate with all key stakeholders to make sure we are planning and executing appropriately. Planning and agreements will include making decisions about employee work time, providing meals for students, remote learning for students, and more.
Each and every one of you are valued and we look forward to returning to reopening our schools in a way that is “business as usual,” as soon as allowable and possible.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Newsom’s stay at home order, Amador County Public Schools will shift to distance learning effective Monday, March 23 until further notice. Please note that the Extended Learning Program is not offering services at this time.
- Details on teacher-led distance learning will be coming out later next week and will begin Monday, March 30.
- Beginning Monday, each school will work to identify students that do not have a digital device at home. Chromebooks will be available for checkout.
- Each school will also identify families that do not have internet access and a solution is in the works for these situations.
If you have questions please call the district office at 209-257-5334 beginning Monday, March 23, 2020.
Thank you for your ongoing patience as we navigate these unprecedented times.
