Yes. We will follow the orders of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department in conjunction with the Santa
Clara County Office of Education. All school districts in Santa Clara County have pledged to work together on
school closures and the reopening of schools.
How will the closures impact the school year? Will we have to make up lost days?
The Governor’s Executive Order N-26-20 allows school districts to continue to receive uninterrupted funding from
the state and the closures will not impact the 175-day requirement of the instructional calendar if the District’s
Superintendent certifies that the closure occurred to address COVID-19. Our school year is currently scheduled to
end on June 12, 2020.
How do we continue to provide access to learning for all students?
Currently, optional instructional resources have been posted at OGSD.org. We will continue to update them as more
become available. We recommend you visit the website regularly. We recognize there are many questions about
the future and we appreciate your patience as our staff work through a long-term plan to support students in the
event of a lengthier closure.
