Coronavirus Update - 3/13/20

Good afternoon REAL Journey Families,

We are all concerned with the spread of Coronavirus (COVID19). As members of the community, we recognize we must take appropriate measures to do our part in controlling and containing the virus. I know this means most people will experience some inconvenience and a change in routine in the coming weeks and months. This is true for all of us who are part of the REAL Journey Academies (RJA) family. We are taking prudent and appropriate measures immediately to do our part. We want to thank you in advance, knowing all of our lives will be disrupted to some extent. Working together, we will do everything we can to protect our children, our employees and our community at large. We would like to remind you our school community has NO COVID-19 cases at this time.

REAL Journey Academies will immediately implement the following guidelines for events and/or activities until further notice. Based on California Governor Newsom’s Executive Order, we consider size of event, indeterminate participation, and essentiality of the event. Based on this criteria, we have made the decision to cancel the following events/activities:

• All large-scale events in excess of 250+ people (does not include regular school classes)
• All rallies
• All field trips to other institutions (universities, museums, etc…) with an established risk
• All conferences in locations with established risk
• All award ceremonies
• All open houses
• All outside Use of Facilities
• All sports competitions

Other activities are being closely monitored and may be canceled due to the severity of risk in the area at the time of the event. We will continue to evaluate upcoming events daily to determine if the event will proceed as planned or if it will be canceled. School site administration will be messaging families regarding specific events that may not be listed above.

We recognize the difficult circumstances these decisions place on our students, staff, and families. It is necessary for REAL Journey Academies to be responsible global citizens and do our part to prevent the spread of this contagious disease and to protect all members of the REAL Journey Academies community. This matter remains extremely fluid, and information can change at any time. Thank you for your flexibility and your commitment to supporting us during this time.

You will be receiving additional communications from us as new information becomes available. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our Covid-19 website at www.realjourney.org/covid. In addition, feel free to send us an email at info@realjourney.org (subject line: covid19).

Sincerely,

REAL Journey Academies
