Caring for and Educating East Bay’s Young Children Since 1976
Due to the new order (as of March 31, 2020) from the Health Officers of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, for all individuals to continue to shelter at their place of residence, we have made the difficult decision to continue to close our schools as the "shelter in place" order has been extended.
This Order is necessary to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will update this notice with any new information and orders from Contra Costa and Alameda Counties Health Officers.
Please keep safe and healthy and we will meet together soon. Please contact the individual school for any enrollment questions (see links at top of page for locations). (Revised April 6, 2020)
