Dear Benicia and Parents and Guardians.

In light of recent guidance from the State and Federal Government regarding Covid-19, the Benicia Unified School District is extending its school closure through April 10, which includes spring break. We are monitoring all of this daily and will continue to provide updates.

We deeply appreciate everyone’s patience and partnership during this critical time in world history.

I came across the following from one of my favorite authors Brene Brown:

“Fear and anxiety can drive us to become very self-focused. This global pandemic is a real case of ‘getting sick together’ or ‘staying well together.’ Our choices affect everyone around us. There is no such thing as ‘individual risk’ or ‘individual wellness.’”

In partnership,
Dr. Charles Young
