Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) Impacting Schools

El Dorado County Schools remain Open for In-person Instructions (11-16-20)  -- On November 16, the State of California announced that El Dorado County has moved into the Purple or ‘Widespread’ tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This does not impact El Dorado County schools, county-wide El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE) programs or administrative offices that have reopened their facilities to hybrid, in-person instruction/operations. Any El Dorado County schools that have not opened to in-person instruction will now be required to wait until the County returns to a less restrictive tier and follow a different process for re-opening. It is important to note that education is considered an essential function and is not a ‘gathering’ as defined by the state.
