Schools in the Lompoc Unified School District will remain closed through the remained of the year.

Parents in the district were notified Thursday that while students will not return to the classroom before summer, distance learning would continue.

District officials say the announcement comes after Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that school district and charter schools in the state continue with distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

"While we understand that school closures create hardships for many families, we are grateful for the flexibility of our school communities and continue to look forward while we navigate this pandemic. We are resolutely working together for the betterment of kids. It has been really quite inspiring to witness," Lompoc Unified School District Superintendent Trevor McDonald said in a press release.

Breakfast and lunch is still available for pickup at school sites in the district.
