Bay Area SCHOOLS TO REMAIN CLOSED through May 1, 2020

In order to flatten the curve of COVID-19 and protect the health of all Bay Area residents, 7 counties, including Alameda, have extended school closures until May 1st.

I believe that this was the right decision and am proud that our elected representatives for education have come to this decision during this pandemic. I realize that this adds stress to many people’s day to day lives and their children, but these closures are necessary during this pandemic to flatten the curve.
