Good Afternoon Salida Families:

During the school closure, Salida Union School District will be providing learning opportunities for our students to continue in their education while at home.

For Kindergarten through 5th grade, learning packets will be sent home with all students that are in attendance on Wednesday.  For students that are not in attendance, parents may pick up the packets at our sites during breakfast and lunch distributions.  Each site will be distributing food and learning packets between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to Noon Monday through Friday.  There will be no distributions during Spring Break.

Salida Middle School will provide opportunities for distance learning.  Information and links will be pushed out to students through Google Classroom and/or student school email accounts.

All information will be posted on school websites.  Our District Office and School Site Offices will remain open on March 19 and 20, closed during Spring Break (March 23-March 27), and reopening on March 30.

Please continue to visit our website at for updated information on the school closures.


COVID-19 UPDATE March 16, 2020 4:30 PM

Dear Salida Families:

Salida Union schools will be suspended effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 through April 5, 2020.  You will be notified in the event that schools remain suspended beyond this time frame.

By closing on Thursday, this gives our families who need it, time to make arrangements for childcare. However, if the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in our County increases between now and this Wednesday, we will close our schools earlier.

During the closure, Salida Union School District will continue to provide much-needed nutrition services to our families with “brown bag” breakfast and lunch pick-ups at each school. We will provide the distribution schedule early this week.

We understand the concerns and many opinions that are circulating about COVID-19, we are taking responsibility to act in the best interests of our students and staff.  Please continue to check our website at for updated information.
