Dear East Valley Family, Community, Students, and Staff, UPDATE: April 3, 2020
The health and safety of students, staff and community remains our top priority. Based on recommendations from state and local health and education authorities, East Valley is extending the suspension of on-site classes and instead providing students with online distance learning through May 29th, 2020. This date also marks the end of the school year.
Thank you for your continued patience as we transition from traditional classrooms to online distance learning starting on Monday, April 13.We know there are many questions about online distance learning. Please be patient as we work through all of the logistics. This situation is rapidly evolving and the decisions we are making focus on the best interests of the health and safety of our students, staff and families. We will provide you with more information, clarification and further details as the answers arise. There have been many questions about graduation. Unfortunately, our previous graduation date of May 28th, 2020 will be changed to a later date. East Valley will have graduation and will inform everyone when a concrete date is chosen.
We will keep you updated as new information is released. In the meantime, please do your part to continue social distancing and good hygiene by washing your hands. Together, we will flatten the curve. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation as a united community.
East Valley is committed to providing all of you with the most up to date information we have. Please Check our website for the most current news. If you have any questions or concerns you may also contact the school. We will be checking voicemails and returning phone calls in a timely manner.

Dear Parents/Guardians, 4/2/2020
As of right now East Valley will not resume classes until May 4th, 2020.
Dear East Valley Education Districts, SELPA, Students, Families and Staff, 3/16/2020
The difficult decision has been made to suspend classes effective on Thursday, March 19th through April 5th. We will be adjusting our school calendar and moving spring break to the week of March 23-27th. We will continue to take off Good Friday April 10th. The last day of classes will be Wednesday, March 18 at Noon and school will resume at East Valley on Monday, April 6th. For those districts that are out until April 20th, you will not be penalized if you chose to keep your student(s) home until April 20th. We will continue to monitor and evaluate this plan as new information becomes available. If Modesto City School extends until April 20th, we will follow.
This timeline will give parents time to make necessary arrangements for supervision for their children. This is a particularly tough pronouncement as educating our students is the essence of our mission, but circumstances require we take this action.
Let’s finish the remaining two days with students committed to providing them with the best education.
All the Best, Marshal Musselman

Good afternoon East Valley Education Center staff and parents,
With the cold and flu season upon us and concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), I wanted to give you the most recent information and provide you with important tips to help you stay healthy this season and help prevent flu/other respiratory illnesses.
Given how quickly the situation is evolving, we continue to monitor new developments as well as the evaluation of our steps and actions. In the meantime, students and staff should continue to practice the same precautions that they normally do during cold and flu season. To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including the coronavirus and flu, follow these important tips:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash or cough/sneeze into your sleeve.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
The CA Department of Public Health does not recommend the use of face masks for general prevention and states handwashing provides better protection from infectious diseases.
As a reminder, if your child is sick, please keep them home from school. All children and staff members with fever (>100.4 F) should remain home from school and other activities until they have no fever for 24 hours, without fever-reducing medication.
It is important to remember that handling the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19 is primarily a task for public health agencies. At EVEC, we will continue to follow directives from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, CA Department of Public Health, and our Stanislaus County Public Health Officer.
For your information, I have attached 2 infographics, a link to the CDC coronavirus page, as well as a link to the CA Department of Public Health coronavirus page.
The safety and wellness of our students and staff are a priority, we are grateful for our school community and your help in maintaining a healthy and safe learning environment!
