Coronavirus: Kids begin returning to schools at East Bay district

MORAGA — Students enrolled at the four campuses of the Moraga School District returned to classrooms for the first time in months on Tuesday, but only partially.

The students, kindergartners through sixth-graders, are doing a mix of in-person learning and studying from home, a district representative said.

Under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed “Safe Schools for All” plan announced Dec. 30, districts can reopen campuses to students once the county COVID-19 case rate falls to 25 cases per 100,000 residents.

On Feb. 7, Contra Costa County’s average for cases per 100,000 dropped to an adjusted rate of 23.7, helping set the stage for getting kids back into Moraga classrooms.

The district has about 1,850 students. They attend Camino Pablo, Donald Rheem and Los Perales elementary schools, as well as Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School.

Meanwhile, nearby Lafayette School District is set to have kindergartners through fifth graders back on campuses starting Thursday.

The students will be attending classes online in the morning and will come to school in the afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
