The Butte County Office of Education announced at today's press conference that all Butte County schools (including Oroville City Elementary School District) will be closed through Friday, April 17. We are informing our families as soon as possible, so they can begin to plan for the extended closure. Today (March 19), OCESD began its distribution of education plans, materials and Chromebooks to families to support students in continuing their education during the school closures. OCESD will do its best to support continued student learning throughout the school closures.
Additionally, the Butte County Office of Education started distributing to-go meals for all children 18 and under at select school sites across Oroville today. Go to www.ocesd.net for locations and times for meal distributions.

We cannot thank you enough for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this national crisis. Education truly takes a community, and I have no doubt that we will all rise to the challenge as we have done so many times through these last few years. The well-being of our students is always our top priority as we plan for the next four weeks. We will continue to keep you updated as we learn more and, as always, please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns and suggestions.
