Coronavirus (2019 Novel Coronavirus)

State Superintendent Tony Thurmond and the CDE are extremely concerned about the mental health and wellness of students whose lives have dramatically changed during the COVID-19 response, as well as the health of staff who are also coping with these changes. Please visit our Distance Learning page and our Counseling and Student Support page for more information.

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. Amador County is under a local health emergency to enhance the effectiveness of the response to COVID-19 and large gatherings have been canceled by the district at this time. Below are resources for our community.
