Events in Las Vegas and Reno have both been cancelled. Most sports events were cancelled, except for the NFL draft. Additionally many business events and conventions were cancelled or postponed, such as CinemaCon. Most events have been rescheduled to later this year.

As of today in New York, Broadway is preparing to close all theaters. The Governor Andrew M. Cuomo will be limiting attendance now through April 12.

Today, Principal Donna Levy emailed all students and parents regarding a new CCSD policy. All clubs are officially cancelled and all students will be required to leave campus at 1:25 everyday. There will be no late buses anymore and students will not be able to go to the school library after school.

The freshmen movie night planned for tomorrow has been cancelled and students who bought tickets will be given refunds.

However, organizations providing after-school care, such as Safekey, will continue operating daily.

Additionally, CCSD ordered that all salad bars will be removed from schools to avoid contamination.

Today’s Board Meeting will continue as planned. It is open to the public and will be streamed live online.
