Al­though Vallejo schools are closed, the district will con­tinue to pro­vide meals “to all stu­dents who need them,” District Su­per­in­ten­dent Adam Clark an­nounced on Mon­day.

Start­ing Wed­nes­day, the Vallejo City Uni­fied School District will be­gin of­fer­ing “grab and go” break­fast and lunch meals at five dif­fer­ent Vallejo school sites.

They in­clude:

Clark the side cafe­te­ria doors fac­ing Ge­or­gia Street.

• Jesse Bethel High School, 1800As­cot Park­way. Meals in the park­ing lot near the cafe­te­ria/stu­dent union.

The non-con­gre­gate meal ser­vice will be pro­vided through March 27.

Of­fi­cials are also of­fer­ing pro­vi­sions which have been do­nated by the food bank, which will also be pro­vided to fam­i­lies dur­ing meal ser­vices.

Meals and pro­vi­sions will be pro­vided on a first come first serve bases.

Stan­dard­ize meal ser­vice hours are as fol­lows: Break­fast — 8to 9a.m. Lunch 11 a.m. to noon

Also start­ing Wed­nes­day, the district’s main of­fice and school sites will be closed for non-ap­point­ment busi­ness.

Clark pre­vi­ously an­nounced that all district schools were can­celled through the end of March. The district’s spring break be­gins in April and lasts two weeks. Stu­dents could re­turn as early as April 13.

“VCUSD will of­fer mul­ti­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties for Dis­tance Learn­ing, how­ever, due to the fact that not all stu­dents have ac­cess to de­vices or Wi-Fi, par­tic­i­pa­tion is not re­quired,” Clark added in his same an­nounce­ment. “The only ex­cep­tion may be for in­di­vid­ual sit­u­a­tions, e.g., com­plet­ing credit re­cov­ery cour­ses on­line. Oth­er­wise, all on­line work and re­sources is sup­ple­men­tal.”

Clark also said he would be pro­vid­ing reg­u­lar up­dates through Par­ent Square and posts on the district’s web­site, https://vcusd-ca.school­loop.com/.

In other news, Grif­fin Tech­nol­ogy Acad­e­mies will be closed through April 10, just like the Vallejo school district.

“Also, note that some coun­ties are go­ing into shel­ter-in-place mode, but as of this post­ing Solano County has not is­sued such an or­der,” said GTA Su­per­in­ten­dent Matt Smith in a press re­lease. “As such, un­til Solano County Of­fice of Emer­gency Ser­vices or­ders a shel­ter-in-place, GTA will con­tinue to pro­vide lim­ited site ser­vices, on the Mare Is­land Tech­nol­ogy Academy cam­pus, in­clud­ing a su­per­vised com­puter lab for stu­dents and free food ser­vices for all com­mu­nity mem­bers 18 years and younger from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily.”

The Cal­i­for­nia State Univer­sity Mar­itime Academy an­nounced Mon­day af­ter­noon that the univer­sity is sus­pend­ing all in-per­son and vir­tual classes for the next two days “to al­low for an or­derly and safe de­par­ture of all cadets who are able to leave the cam­pus.”

“For those cadets re­main­ing on cam­pus, par­tic­u­larly those who do not wish to travel to higher-risk ar­eas at home, or who may not have al­ter­na­tive liv­ing ar­range­ments, hous­ing and din­ing ser­vices will still be avail­able,” said univer­sity spokesman Bobby King in a news re­lease.

King said all classes be­yond 6 p.m. Mon­day were can­celled, with vir­tual cour­ses ex­pected to re­sume on Thurs­day.

All in-per­son classes are sus­pended through April 5, King said.
