  • Coronavirus Update for Kings County Families

    Updated April 2, 2020

    Dear parents and guardians of Kings County students, 

    The Kings County office of Education continues to work with the local department of public health, and our school districts to keep informed of the reports and updates regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).  In addition, all our districts have received information from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the California Department of Education (CDE) and based on this latest information have reached the decsion to extend school closures until such time Governor Newsom lifts the "shelter in place" order.

    To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses and other illnesses, everyone should follow standard safety procedures:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
    • Avoid contact with people who are sick
    • Stay home if you are sick
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
    • Consult a doctor if you have any severe or chronic symptoms

    Parents should contact their local school district office or school site for specific information related to their schools.  Please support and follow direction from administrators regarding measures they are taking to keep all students and staff healthy and safe.

    Contact the Kings County Office of Education to be directed to a specific school site for further questions 589-2500.
