Shelter in Place Information
Dear LCMSD Community,
I hope this reaches you well and after some much-needed downtime this weekend. Living in an active community like Marin creates opportunities for us to engage in healthy outdoor activities. We are so fortunate to have hiking, biking, surfing, etc. right out our front doors. With that said, you might have noticed the influx of people to Marin and our open spaces. This made weekend social distancing much more challenging, ultimately leading to the closure of parks to vehicles. While this may decrease the number of visitors to Marin parks, ultimately the choice to social distance is our collective responsibility. Being active has benefits for physical and mental wellness; however, when hitting the trails or walking the dog, please remember to social distance, keeping at least 6 feet between you and others.
To help promote social distancing, LCMSD closed all playgrounds last Friday by wrapping them in caution tape and putting up signage. Unfortunately, we heard reports of tape being torn down and families using the play structures. LCMSD playgrounds are closed. Do not allow your children to use them and practice social distancing.

Distance Learning - “Live” Classroom Sessions
Teachers and staff have done a phenomenal job quickly transitioning from classroom-based instruction to distance learning. In this shift, we have found many promising practices, one of which is “live” classroom sessions. This week we are offering more training in Zoom and Google Hangouts to share this practice.
Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer is Marin's 39th Confirmed Case of COVID-19
Today Dr. Willis shared that he has tested positive for COVID-19. He stated that his symptoms have improved over the weekend. Dr. Willis has been a critical partner in the Bay Area for not only COVID-19, but other health-related circumstances (fires, AQI from wildfires). We wish him a speedy recovery.
