Communicating with Staff During School Closure
To curb the spread of COVID-19, and in compliance with the State’s “Stay Home” and Los Angeles County “Safer at Home” public health orders, the Duarte Unified School District will adhere to all “social distancing” directives. For this reason, the District Office will be closed to the public beginning Thursday, March 26, 2020.
As essential service providers, district and school staff will continue to work remotely, except for identified employees needed to provide on-site support. All employees over 65 years of age and/or with underlying health conditions will only work remotely. Staff will not report to work on-site if feeling sick and will notify their supervisor. If you need to reach a member of our team, refer to the contact information below. For general information requests, please check our website at www.duarteusd.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (626) 599-5019.
