Announcement: 3-18-20 Update Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Good afternoon GVA~

A quick 2 item update for you today; Governor's press conference comments, and community resources for food support.

Regarding the Governor's comments last night about schools potentially closing for the remainder of the school year; we have no information on that currently, it seems a worst case scenario at this point in time given the rapidly evolving situation. GVA will continue to work with the Stanislaus County Office of Education as well as other local districts to move forward in a way best supporting our children and staff. I will keep you posted as we move forward, we should have more information in the next 10-14 days. Thank you for supporting our students, staff and each other.
