Important update regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) for NTA members
Yesterday, the Elk Grove Unified School District confirmed that one of their families was placed into quarantine for testing positive for COVID-19. As a result, the Elk Grove Unified School District decided to close schools down for the upcoming week (3/7/2020-3/13/2020). In addition, it has been reported that students from two schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District may have been exposed to COVID-19. However, Sacramento City Unified School District has decided to not close any schools.
Currently, there have been no current reports regarding any NUSD students or families being exposed or testing positive for COVID-19. However, we will remain in contact with the District leadership as we collaborate to create an adequate plan and engage in clear communication with all employees.
As of now, NTA has confirmed that District leaders are in close contact with the county regarding any changes and that schools will remain open (no schools will be closed). If anything changes, we will send an update as soon as possible.
