OFFICIAL DISTRICT COMMUNICATION Message from Superintendent Duffy: Thank You For a Successful Distance Learning Pick Up

Dear WCCUSD Families,

Thank you for a successful distance learning distribution today. We were able to get more materials and technology into the hands of our students and that’s a good thing. We know that there are additional needs such as musical instruments, textbooks, and other supplemental instructional resources and we will work to provide additional opportunities to access our schools and get those resources distributed. If you still have needs or questions, please contact us at (510) 243-3901 or at

First, there hasn’t been any new information from federal, state, or local agencies today to change our current position around the closure caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak affecting our community. But we want to continue encouraging WCCUSD students to engage with the distance learning opportunities that have been made available. As there is more discussion about extended school closures, we believe that it is imperative that students remain connected to learning. More information and additional supports will be made available in the upcoming days and weeks.

Second, while there isn’t any new information to share, we do want to remind all of our families about the 2020 Census. Households should have received an invitation to complete the 2020 Census  Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your household in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. The Census determines the amount of federal funding distributed to states for programs that impact schools, students and families. For more information on the 2020 Census, please visit Be Counted, California!

Finally, we want to ensure that families are receiving the most up-to-date information from the District. District information and resources can be found online at If there are any District families who are not receiving messages from the District, please share this link so they can make sure we have their updated information. 

As always, thank you for your continued patience and support.

In Partnership

Matthew Duffy
