I’ll be blogging about the general strike for the Tribune tomorrow, and I’d love to hear how the day is shaping up for staff and families in the city’s schools. If you think of it, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), message me on Facebook (facebook.com/KatyEMurphy) or post a comment below with your plans, thoughts and stories.
If you’ll be posting photos and updates on Twitter, send me your name so I can follow you! Mine is @katymurphy.
Here’s what I have so far:
- All district-run schools will remain open tomorrow.
- OUSD has gotten 268 requests for substitute teachers, compared to 24 for last Wednesday. (Still not sure how many have been filled.)
- No field trips will be allowed unless an exception is made by the principals’ supervisors.
- Oakland School for the Arts, an independently-run charter school in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood, will be closed for safety reasons.
