    MDUSD Schools Closed Through May 1st

    Dear MDUSD Community,

    Today, six bay area counties and public health officials have made a unified, regional decision to extend school closures through May 1, 2020. This is a coordinated response to the continuing expansion of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the bay area, and represents a best effort to reduce the number of affected individuals and to keep our communities as safe as possible.

    Hence, while it pains me to inform our public of this information, we have no other recourse but to continue with our school closure through Friday, May 1, 2020. Mount Diablo Unified School District schools will remain closed through May 1, 2020.

    Pursuant to Governor’s Executive Order 26-20, the Mount Diablo Unified School District, in collaboration with Districts from across Contra Costa County and our Contra Costa County Office of Education, will continue to expand the District’s Distance Learning programs to the best of our ability. Food services will continue at 9 locations district-wide, and payments to our employees will continue through this period.

    Our district is, like many other districts, expecting guidance from the California Department of Education to address many of our unknowns. Our administrative team is working diligently to provide the best and as much guidance as possible to our staff, and we are proud to have seen a coordinated effort to deliver continued services at a safe distance. This is a difficult and uncharted territory for all of us, and it will require patience, growth, and understanding from all of us.

    Our situation continues to evolve and we will continue to communicate updates with any new information—by phone, email, social media, and on our district website.

    Respectfully,

    Superintendent Dr. Rob Martinez
    Mount Diablo Unified School District

    Home Study Plan

    Dear Westwood Families, 

    Thank you for your patience as we have been trying to find our way through our bizarre new circumstances. Below is a link to our school-wide general plan for home-based learning. The goal of this is to provide an overview of guidelines appropriate for all grades. You will see that the majority of these recommendations do not require access to the internet or an electronic device, or to specific materials or supplies. Your child's teacher and special education support providers will be reaching out to you directly - via phone, email, and/or regular mail, to connect with you about more specific grade level or individual recommendations for learning at home. Teachers will be available to support you and your child(ren) during regular school hours/days.  

    Westwood's Home Study Information  (paper copies of this plan will be available outside of school)

    There is more than enough information on the internet to keep you and your family busy for years. Please try to keep it simple: Start by reviewing the information we have provided here, and by your child's teacher. Then, let your child(ren)'s interests drive other activities - having a specific focus will help you weed through the thousands of free resources currently available. 

    During the duration of the closure, be sure to check the MDUSD (most current) and Westwood websites for updates. I also encourage you to 'like' and 'follow' our Facebook and Twitter accounts. If you haven't already, you can also sign up for text notices by dialing 81010 on your smartphone and texting @westwoodel in the subject line. Through this tool, you may also message me directly.

    Please know that grab-and-go meals will be available for ALL children under age 18 to pick up at El Dorado Middle School every school day, starting tomorrow, 3/18 from 11:00am-12:30pm.

    Wishing you all well!

    Sincerely,

    Nancy Klinkner, Principal
