The Solano County Office of Education advised all school districts throughout the county Thursday to extend school closures and subsequent distance learning through May 1.
Action by the county office follows similar action taken Wednesday by the Fairfield-Suisun School District.
Solano County school districts and charter schools had previously announced tentative dates that would extend school closures until mid-April. However, Gov. Gavin Newsom has called for individuals to stay at home statewide and prohibited mass gatherings of more than 10 people – indefinitely.
