Clarification for ..."pupil instruction and extracurricular activities for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year”.

The Governor’s General Counsel has defined the end of the 2019-2020 school year as June 30, 2020. – the statutorily determined end of the school year. This means that school buildings and associated grounds are closed to students for instructional and extracurricular activities through that date. It is possible that an additional order may extend that time further. It does not alter your currently scheduled last day of school for students in your district. It is anticipated districts will continue whatever programming and services are currently being provided until the last attendance day. Whatever common practice of early completion for seniors you may have established may still be observed at your local discretion.

Related, this means that any summer school programming, if conducted during June, will have to be provided in a manner other than face-to-face in a school building. Note, the current order does not preclude the potential to hold summer school in a more face-to-face manner in July or August. However, a future order based on the status of COVID-19 may result in extended restrictions on access to facilities and grounds during those months. We simply do not know that now.
