Set to be held remotely on Friday morning, this week's breakfast will have Clarkson joined by San Ramon Valley Unified School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt and School Board Trustee Ken Mintz to talk about the district's plans for reopening schools.

"Public schools are scheduled to open in just a few short weeks. San Ramon schools, like most California schools, will reopen in a fully remote distance learning environment," Clarkson said in an email to residents. "Rick and Ken will share the plans for reopening as well as answer questions submitted in advance."

During Friday's meeting Clarkson will also be joined by Contra Costa County Supervisor Candace Andersen, City Manager Joe Gorton and Dr. Patrick Joseph, associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California.

Previously held in-person on a monthly basis, since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Mayor Clarkson has been holding his breakfast events weekly in an effort to keep residents informed on the latest news concerning the pandemic. Past speakers include State Senator Steve Glazer, San Ramon Regional Medical Center CEO Ann Lucena, San Ramon Police Chief Craig Stevens and PG&E government relations representative Tom Guarino.
