Greetings Eureka City Schools Families,

I want to start by recognizing how amazing our staff here at Eureka City Schools are! They have been working countless hours to prepare the extended learning for our students. As they make personal phone calls to you over this period of schools being closed, I encourage you to thank them for their monumental efforts. 

Please note, in the coming weeks, teachers will be personally contacting you and/or your students via telephone. Many of these calls will have a caller ID of unknown.

Today, we served over 2,000 meals to the children in our community. We also disseminated thousands of learning packets. If you have been unable to get your packets, school busses will be delivering packets, breakfast, and lunch, at the normal times and bus stops for morning school pick-up. TK-8 learning packets and lunch for those 18 and under will also be available at Washington, Lafayette, Grant, and Alice Birney Elementary Schools from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Eureka High School will have packets for the non-online classes available from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and lunch for those 18 and under from 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

All school offices, along with the District Office, will be closed starting on Monday, other than by appointment. The main lines for our schools will have their voicemail monitored, so calls will be returned. The order to shelter in place has designated the meal service and extended learning from schools as essential services to our community, so both will continue.
If your student does not have an internet-connected device, and you have not already done so, please contact your student’s school.

Finally, please follow the guidelines from Public Health in regard to sheltering in place and stay healthy.

Fred Van Vleck, Ed.D.
