These are unprecedented times for the California School of the Arts - San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV) community as we deal with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. This situation is rapidly evolving and in these extraordinary circumstances, our school community must come together to help one another, to show care and compassion for those who are vulnerable, and to each do our part in service of the greater good.
In accordance with the most recent guidelines and recommendations from Governor Newsom, California State Superintendent Tony Thurmond, and federal, state, and local agencies, we have made the difficult decision to extend our school closure through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. CSArts-SGV will continue online distance learning instruction through the last day of school on Friday, May 29th, and the CSArts-SGV campus will not reopen for on-campus instruction until the start of the Fall 2020 semester.
Unfortunately, this decision also means we must cancel all performances and special events through the end of the school year. That said, conservatory directors and teachers are working daily to create collaborative opportunities and digital platforms to highlight the talents of our exceptional students. We have great confidence in the leadership and creativity of our faculty, who are designing meaningful virtual performances, master classes, and experiences to make the best of this difficult situation.
