Sheltering in Place Means Staying Home:  https://www.gov.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/3. 19.20-EO-N-33-20-COVID-19-HEALTH-ORDER-03.19.20-signed.pdf

The order means that all individuals are ordered to shelter at their place of residence.  The order does identify reasons such as accessing healthcare, going to the store to obtain food, and exercising outside as permitted and appropriate activities as long as social distancing guidelines are being followed.

While school closures provide far more unstructured time for children at home, routines of the day may becomes more normalized over the next few days and weeks.  That being said, we understand the challenges families are facing.  Please be assured that WUSD is fully focused on preparing learning resources for students and on continuing to provide essential school operations.  
They include:
-distributing food to families that need it
-preparing to deploy computer devices to families in need
-developing a plan to support internet access for families who do not have it
-continuing our preparations related for distance learning
-developing a plan on how to address SPED students IEP needs & equitable e-learning for all students
-continuing our communications with our families and staff
-ensuring that regular employees are paid
-providing essential support for families through our Family Resource Center Hotline:
(530)473-4311 (In-person support will be appointment only)
Under Govenor Gavin Newsom's order, schools are considered to be one of the state's critical infrastructure sectors: meaning we are required to provide several essential services (as listed above) and have been asked to continue with plans for distance learning.  We are currently providing:
1. Grab and Go Meals from 11:00am-11:30am Monday-Friday.  The child must be present in the pick-up vehicle to receive a meal bag.  The pick-up site location for all students is:
Williams Elementary School, 1404 E Street in Williams

2. Learning Resources for Students

3.  Daycare - The WUSD did not provide daycare prior to this crisis and we have no plans or capacity to provide daycare now.

4.  Pay for Staff

Recent Federal Guidance on Serving Children With Disabilities: The U.S. Department of Education has issued guidance (here) on serving children with disabilities during the COVID-19 crisis. The guidance is perhaps the clearest we have received so far. For example, it states:    “Some educators … have been reluctant to provide any distance instruction because they believe that federal disability law presents insurmountable barriers to remote education. This is simply not true.  We remind schools that they should not opt to close or decline to provide distance instruction, at the expense of students, to address matters pertaining to services for students with disabilities.”   The guidance notes that students with disabilities still must be provided a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), and suggests this may require educators to look at an individual student’s IEP to determine what services might be provided. But the tone of the guidance is clear – this is an unprecedented situation, and some flexibility (including with special education law timelines) will be needed as educators, parents and stakeholders collaborate to find creative ways to continue to serve students with special needs.
