As many students are aware, Morro Bay High School joined schools from around the nation in temporarily closing its doors due to fears of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Currently, the plan is for the school to reopen on April 15th, but that stands to change depending on the situation.
While the school is closed, students are expected to continue their education online. Morro Bay High School teachers took Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th to meet and plan an online curriculum. Today, Wednesday, March 18th, stands as the first official day of online school. Students should check their school emails and Google Classroom frequently. Teachers are expected to post assignments at around 9:00 am every day.
Although the school is temporarily closing, students who rely on it for food or technology’s needs are being addressed. Free lunch is being offered every weekday and district-approved technology devices can be picked up through tomorrow, Thursday, March 19th. Students with need for WiFi can work with Charter Spectrum, who are offering free WiFi to households with students for the next 60 days. More information is being communicated through ParentSquare.
So far, seven cases of the novel Coronavirus have been reported in San Luis Obispo County. There have been no reported deaths of the disease.
