To all LVUSD Families and Stakeholders:
I would like to update our community regarding the worldwide concerns with respect to the Coronavirus aka COVID-19. The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a press conference on February 25, 2020, to share that the USA is continuing its aggressive containment strategies of detecting, tracking, and isolating all Coronavirus cases. But the CDC did note that COVID-19 cases continue to rise in other countries. As such, LVUSD remains prepared in the event that the Coronavirus becomes a more widespread issue in our immediate area.
As of today, there are still no reported cases in the county. This is not to say that we won’t have any. But as of yet there are none.
LVUSD wants to let our community know that we are closely monitoring the worldwide COVID-19 situation and our commitment to a safe school environment remains paramount. I will continue to provide updates while we work closely with government public health and education offices to receive continued direction, guidance, and support as new developments surrounding COVID-19 arise.
We will continue to refine protocols for our schools and share more information with our stakeholders in the event that COVID-19 becomes a larger issue in our immediate area.
Should you have questions and/or concerns please go directly to your administrator to share. I will share information we receive from CDC and our County as we receive it.
So you are aware, we have had shared with us Emergency plans for Infectious Disease that we are reviewing to meet our needs.
Once again as of today there are zero reported cases in our County. Please review the news release with reminders about how to protect yourself from all viruses.
Thank you all for your continued support in keeping everyone safe.
Peter Livingston, Superintendent
