Michael Wells, To the Elverta School District Families, As we commence the beginning of a new school year, it is with a high degree of excitement and anticipation that I begin this school year as your new Superintendent/Principal of the Elverta School District. This past school year was a challenge for everyone. Although I was leading another district at the time, I am well aware of the fantastic teamwork and cooperation that the Elverta staff, students, and families did in working together to power through the obstacles that were in front of us. In what I have learned in true Elverta fashion, the students, staff, and families rose to the challenge of the ever evolving guidelines and protocols of the pandemic to provide a safe environment and quality education for all students. Together everyone made adjustments, acted quickly, and provided instruction and learning no matter what the next hurdle presented. I am very fortunate to be a new member of a school and community that worked tirelessly and collaboratively to produce a learning environment that was safe and supportive for everyone. Moving forward, we look to provide expanded learning opportunities and academic support for all students to minimize the disruptive academic impact of this past year. The only thing we have lost is time. We will meet all students where they are academically and accelerate their learning as needed. Student learning is our top priority. We will focus on each student’s academic and socio-emotional needs by providing an environment that promotes growth, caring, and support in the critical areas of intellectual development. As we prepare for a new school year starting Wednesday, August 11th, our plan is to be fully open with in-person learning five days a week in our traditional full day schedule. At this time, all students and staff will be required by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to wear masks while inside the classrooms. As we know, the guidelines, mandates, and recommendations are ever evolving. In the weeks ahead, we will keep you updated on the changing landscape of protocols to start the school year. Rest assured that we will continue to monitor and advocate for the safety of our students and staff. We will be prepared to greet your children with smiles on the 1st day of school regardless of the circumstances. As I step into my new position, I am aware that I have big shoes to fill. I’d like to thank Dr. B for the 10 years of insightful leadership, guidance and instructional excellence that he provided the Elverta School District. His impact will forever be known and appreciated by all students, staff and within the community. Congratulations on a job well done Dr. B ! As we start the school year, please know that my door is always open for you. I encourage everyone to stop by if you have any concerns, questions or just want to say hello. Nothing is too big or too small, it is important that you are well informed and have access to me when needed. Please know your input is valued as we move forward to continue building a strong Elverta community of stakeholders that provides our students with a great place to grow. Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe. We look forward to seeing you on August 11th. Sincerely, Michael Wells Superintendent/Principal Elverta Joint Elementary School District

Dr. Michael Borgaard, Ed.D, (Friday, April 3, 2020) All 13 Sacramento County School Districts, and the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), today agreed to keep their campuses closed through the end of the school year to jointly support the coronavirus mitigation effort. The decision was made in consultation with Sacramento County Health Director Dr. Peter Beilenson. “I commend our districts and their fine staffs for doing everything possible to provide distance learning. Districts will also continue distributing meals to students in need,” said David W. Gordon, Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools. Superintendent Gordon also emphasized that while school facilities will not be re-opening, education for students will continue via distance learning. SCOE also is providing a collection of enrichment resources for students, families, and school districts that may be helpful for remote learning. School meal pickups will continue to be available throughout Sacramento County. The Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services has published an interactive map of local meal distribution sites established by local school districts. The announcement by the Districts is in accord with recent statements by Governor Newsom and State Superintendent Thurmond that all California districts focus on distance learning for the remainder of the current school year. Elverta School District is closed for Spring Break April 6-10. We will resume with on-line classroom meetings, work packets, and “grab and go” lunches on Monday, April 13. Thank you for your continued support as we work together through this unprecedented time.
Update: COVID-19 (coronavirus) Thank you for your patience during this ever-changing situation. In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 we have decided to extend school closures through May 1st with students returning to school on May 4th. As our district community navigates this difficult time, we must continue to follow the “shelter-in-place” order issued and stay home except for essential activities. Thank you again for your patience and we will continue to keep you updated on any changes.
Update: COVID-19 (coronavirus) In consultation with the Sacramento County Office of Education, California Department of Public Health, and the Sacramento County Department of Public Health, due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), Elverta School District will close from March 16 - April 10. At this time we anticipate that school will resume on Monday, April 13, 2020. We will be observing Spring Break during the closure time, rather than the previously scheduled dates of April 13-17. Once again, we anticipate resuming school on Monday. April 13, 2020. We appreciate your understanding and assistance. We apologize for any scheduling inconveniences that arise out of the change in Spring Break. We will continue to keep you updated. Thank you
Update: COVID-19 (coronavirus) As of March 12, 2020: In consultation with the Sacramento County Office of Education, California Department of Public Health, and the Sacramento County Department of Public Health, if one student or staff member of a school tests positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus), the school will close for an undetermined period of time. We appreciate your understanding and assistance. We will continue to keep you updated.
