All schools and departments in the Berkeley Unified School District will be closed on Friday, November 16.
The Alameda County Council of Superintendents made the joint decision today to close all schools in Alameda County. Making the decision to close schools was not easy. I hope the extra time off will allow everyone to recover from the difficult week we have experienced.
All schools are closed as planned for the entire week of Thanksgiving, Monday November 19 through Friday November 23. We anticipate the district office and departments will be open as planned on Monday and Tuesday, and the BEARS program at Rosa Parks and Malcolm X is also planned to go forward.
