This will happen on a larger scale at other schools in the District. Cases are spiking in California and it is premature to open on January 5. It’s significant that the infected staff and students DID pass the virus on to others in their families, and it is quite possible that it will spread in the Danville community. Disinfecting the school is not enough with an airborne virus. The vaccine is coming and next year SRVUSD will be in a much better position to open. This school year doesn’t work.

Having a kid that is enrolled in SRVH special needs program,
I have empathy for the these families.
But I totally disagree with in-person teaching without a mask.
For the sake of fellow students, if you can’t wear a mask at school, please stay home.
