Dear Benicia Unified Families,
In light of the ever-changing situation with COVID-19, Solano County schools will be closed for 2 weeks beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We will make a determination at that time about any further closures.
We did not take this decision lightly and recognize that this may cause a hardship for some families. Each school district and charter school will continue to communicate directly with families and staff with updates about re-opening, learning alternatives, and the availability of school meals.
School administrators across Solano County appreciate the proactive illness prevention steps that our families and staff have committed to. Illness prevention steps make a significant difference in safeguarding the health of our communities, and we encourage continued attention in this effort.
We will be sending follow-up communication regarding specifics for BUSD school closures.
Dr. Charles Young
Benicia Unified School District Superintendent
