Dear Murrieta Ranch Families,
It is with a heavy heart that we must convey to you the latest report regarding the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and its impact on our school and community. We were just informed of the following:
Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser today ordered the closure of the county’s schools as officials continue to step up the fight against the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
“To further prevent the spread throughout the county, effective Monday, March 16, I am ordering a school closure, not a dismissal, of all Riverside County public schools. This order also applies to preschools, charter schools, private schools and all colleges and universities in Riverside County,” Kaiser said.
Although we had originally intended for Murrieta Ranch to remain open during the public school closures, we are now mandated by law to temporarily close our doors until we are directed otherwise. As of now, our planned date of return is Monday, April 6.
We understand that this new regulation will cause families an added disruption to their routines, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we continue to closely monitor the situation and we will keep you apprised of any new developments.
Cindy and the Murrieta Ranch Staff
