Dear OVSD Parents,
I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy as we approach Thanksgiving and a much-deserved holiday!
As you may have heard, today Governor Gavin Newsom announced that Orange County has been placed back on the state’s Purple Tier (most restrictive tier) because of a substantial increase in COVID-19 transmissions. The California Blueprint for a Safer Economy outlines a four-tiered, color-coded system to show the status of COVID-19 infections and restrictions in a county.
Even though the Purple Tier designation imposes restrictions on businesses and various social activities, it does not affect the instructional program in our District. OVSD schools will remain open in our current Hybrid schedule. According to California Department of Public Health guidelines, schools that have already resumed in-person instruction can remain open with necessary precautions already in place. It is important to keep in mind that this guidance is subject to change based on future state directives. We will, of course, promptly communicate any changes that may be made.
We are confident in the stringent health and safety procedures we have implemented at all of our school sites, and greatly appreciate your vigilance in observing them.
As a reminder, here are some effective steps you can take to slow the spread of COVID-19:
Thank you for your continued support and partnership.
Dr. Carol Hansen, Superintendent
Gina Clayton-Tarvin, President, Board of Trustees
