District Families: There will be an emergency meeting of Governance Board of the Trona Joint Unified School District 10:00 am on Monday, March 16th to discuss the appropriate preparations and/or actions the district will take in response to the COVID-19 situation. Please be assured that the safety of our students, staff and surrounding community is our upmost concern. Although there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in either Kern or San Bernardino Counties as of March 14th, we realize this is a very fluid situation and could change at any time. We are also aware that our schools provide essential services to our students such as meals, health and mental health services and child care, therefore the decision to close our schools will not be taken lightly. Until additional notification, classes at Trona Elementary and Trona High School will continue as regularly scheduled. Our staff is hard at work developing contingency plans for providing school related services like meals, childcare and alternate forms of instruction should closing the schools become necessary. We encourage parents and community members to attend the emergency board meeting tomorrow at 10:00 am at Trona Elementary School if you have any questions or concerns you would like to address. Sincerely, Interim Assistant Superintendent, Janet Malony

We are closely monitoring information coming from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and San Bernardino County. We will share information as it becomes available. In the event of a school closure, the District is exploring what steps will be needed to continue the education of our students. The California Department of Public Health advises the following steps to prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses: · Wash hands with soap and water. · Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. · Avoiding close contact with people who are sick. · Staying away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms including, fever and cough. As a reminder, here are guidelines TJUSD provides to parents for determining when a child should stay home from school. · If a child has vomited in the last 24 hours. · If a child has had a fever in the last 24 hours. As always, the health and safety of our students and staff remain our number one priority, and as such, we will continue to communicate information as the situation develops.
