Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Resources for the NVUSD Community

Updated May 14, 2020 Stay in place. Maintain your space. Cover your face.

The well-being of NVUSD students and staff is our top priority. 
A person’s risk for this coronavirus is not dependent on race, ethnicity or culture.

Latest updates

  • In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NVUSD has closed all school campuses and facilities through the end of the school year

  • As of April 13, NVUSD transitioned to a Distance Learning Program which is longer-term, comprehensive remote learning model that requires a high degree of participation by students and teachers. 

  • Our Food Services program is providing “grab and go” lunches at four school sites for any child,18 or under, needing lunch during this school closure period. More information 

  • All NVUSD district offices are closed.

  • To ensure that district services continue, district staff/faculty will be working during this timeframe. Most will be working from home; some will be required to report to school facilities to carry out their work. Appropriate health safeguards will be implemented.

  • NVUSD has closed all school facilities, including fields, until the end of the school year, due to directives for health and safety of the community. All uses are suspended until further notice. Current users can contact Facilitron directly for refunds if required, but if not, reservations will be suspended so use can be arranged for a future date. Closures are subject to change.

  • With students no longer in school, it will be critical that families and their students follow social distancing guidelines in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community

  • Be aware of symptoms of illness and stay home if you are not feeling well.

  • Continue to follow best practices for prevention of the spread of viruses, including COVID-19 and the common cold or flu: wash hands frequently; do not touch eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands; cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing; get a flu shot; stay at least 6 feet away from people who are sick; avoid large gatherings.

  • A note about face masks: Face masks are most useful for preventing disease spread when they are worn by people who have coughing, sneezing or runny nose symptoms.

  • Respect the privacy of students and staff. 

  • Parents and guardians, ensure your contact information is up-to-date at your school in the event that large group notifications are sent by phone, email, and text message. Please contact your school office to make any corrections to your information.  

  • Fear and anxiety about COVID-19 can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger. See Coping Resources for Families below.

Our teachers and staff are dedicated to doing what they can to make sure learning continues for students at home.

The Aldea Family Wellness support line is a bilingual behavioral health brief intervention, information and referral service that now helps parents and guardians who are dealing with their children’s anxiety and worry related to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. 

Napa and Solano County residents can call bilingual Spanish/English staff  707-543-1152 for free , confidential support. Launching Saturday April 4, Aldea Family Wellness support line will be answered from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week by live trained behavioral health workers.  The staff answering calls may also provide community resources by linking callers to already existing local partners/businesses helping at this time (meals, rent/housing, library services, teaching/educational services).

Discuss your child’s questions and concerns with them and help them practice good prevention. Depending on your child’s age, some helpful resources may include: “Just For Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus” and “How to Talk to Kids About Coronavirus.”
