All EUSD Schools Are Closed For Remainder Of School Year 2019-2020 school year
With the growing concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and well-being of our students, staff, and community remain a top priority. Based on this week’s press conference by Governor Newsom, California Department of Education (CDE) and the statement from Alameda County Superintendent of Schools, L. Karen Monroe, Emery Unified School District will remain closed for in-person instruction through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.

While the school facilities are closed, instruction will continue through distance learning. We understand the hardship this has placed on families who are both working and trying to provide academic support for their children. Many of our teachers and staff are also parents, who can certainly empathize and are making instructional adjustments based upon the feedback received from our students and families. With guidance from CDE, we continue to work to determine the full impact of this decision, including grading, graduation requirements, exploring alternative plans for celebrating our 2020 graduates, promotions of all other grades and whether summer school may be offered to address additional learning needs. The work that the staff and administrators have done thus far has been tremendous! I am confident that we will continue to keep students at the center of our decision making and ensure students receive both the academic and socio-emotional support needed during these times of uncertainty.

Grab and Go Meals
During the closure, and now the shelter in place order, our Food Services Department will continue to provide curbside breakfast and lunch meals twice a week for any child 18 and under. Children will be able to pick up multiple days worth of food to take home and must be present during pickup of each meal. We will be open at the following times and days:
Monday: 10:00-12:00 (3 breakfasts/3 lunches per student)
Thursday: 10:00-12:00 (2 breakfasts/2 lunches per student)
Meal pickup will be on 1100 47th Street, Emeryville (High School side)
Please bring a grocery bag or cooler to bring food home for the week.
Work Packet Pick Up Schedule
If distance learning using online resources (outlined in detail on the elementary and middle school pages) is not an available option, packets of work specific to each teacher will be available. Please look out for details regarding our next round of packets and pick up time.

In Need of A Student Device?
We are taking formal requests from families regarding the need for devices. Based upon the verified need for devices, we will reach out to families to coordinate the distribution of the devices (while practicing social distancing). We aim to provide devices as early as next week. Due to a limited quantity, we ask that families only request a device if your child is in need of a device to continue with the instruction. We want to make sure that students without any access to a device are given priority. If needed, please go to the "Request a Device" tab.
