San Francisco Unified School District will close for the next three weeks, starting Monday, and extending through the previously scheduled spring break.
“This is not business as usual,” Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews announced, adding, “This will require a measured, sustained response.”
In closing all schools, Matthews said this comes in an effort to prepare for a potentially longer closure.
“As testing increases, so will our number of positive cases,” he warned.
San Francisco Unified School District is California’s seventh largest, with more than 57,000 students.
