Schools Will Be Opening Tomorrow

Hello Windsor Unified School District Families,

This is your District Superintendent, Brandon Krueger with important reminders and updates.

After a thorough assessment of safety, the improving air quality, and the ability to safely re-open schools, we have determined that the Windsor Unified School District schools will be opening, as anticipated, tomorrowWednesday, October 18th

All sites will follow their regular Wednesday bell schedule:   Elementary sites, Windsor Middle School, and Cali Calmecac Language Academy will be on their on their early release schedule.  Windsor High School will be on a late start, “B” Day schedule.

Extended Child Care and Boys and Girls Club will also be open to serve students in their programs.

Each school has been completely inspected and cleaned using Environmental Protection Agency standards for safety after a fire.

If you are concerned about changing air quality, you may choose to send your child with a face mask, which is one filtering method people are using. We will have a supply of back up masks to wear, but recommend the one your child has been using, if applicable.

While the air quality is improving, the Environmental Protection Agency reports that our Air Quality Index is currently at a “moderate level”, meaning that air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants, there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.  For everyone else, it is fine.

Please know that we will continue to monitor and make adjustments to limited outdoor time, as needed.

We are deeply committed to providing a high quality education for all students.  During times of crises, such as what we are experiencing now, we recognize the reassuring effect and value that normal daily routines could bring.

We also realize that a limited number of students/families and staff members are still dealing with the impacts of this terrible event (and continue to wish them safety and comfort as they heal and reset), yet look forward to greeting all students and staff who are able to return tomorrow.

School Closure Update

Hello Windsor Unified School District Families,

This is your District Superintendent, Brandon Krueger with an important update.

After continued assessment of safety, poor air quality, and the continuing number of our families and staff members who are facing significant losses and continued displacement from homes due to the recent fires, all schools will be closed to students through Tuesday, October 17.

Schools will be closed on Monday in order for thorough and complete safety checks, air quality checks and cleaning to be conducted, if possible.

On Tuesday, schools will be closed for students, but considered a “staff day” in order to provide necessary preparation time for all available staff to receive students as soon as school is deemed safe to re-open.

It is our hope to resume classes on Wednesday, October 18, but will continue to monitor all factors (including air quality) very carefully.  We will continue to keep you posted with additional information pertaining to safety measures and future changes and closures.

Please note that Windsor High School continues to serve as an evacuation center and is open to serve our community in need of food, water, and shelter, at least through the weekend.

We continue to express our sincere support and comfort to any of you and your loved ones who have experienced any level of personal loss during this tragedy, as well as our hope that you and yours continue to stay safe.
