All Catholic schools under the Diocese of Fresno are closing for at least two weeks beginning Monday, according to a news release.

Garces Memorial High School will be closed through March 27. Classes are scheduled to resume March 30. 

A directive came down from the Diocese of Fresno to close all school campuses in the diocese. 

During the closure, Garces officials will be disinfecting the entire campus.

The school has a plan to continue education through online class instruction during the campus' physical closure. Teachers will use the ZOOM app to teach lessons virtually and all class materials will be uploaded on iTunes U, the news release states.

Athletics and all extra-curricular activities are suspended until further notice.

So then if you let your kids run around, go to the movies, hang out in crowds, the school closings are useless. They will then bring it home to Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, many of who will die from the severe pneumonia it causes.
