Important IUSD Update: No Cause for Alarm

Dear IUSD Families, I want to assure you that the news events this morning related to Los Angeles Unified School District’s shut down are not connected to the Irvine Unified School District.  We are working closely with the Irvine Police Department, which is monitoring the situation and confirmed there is no cause for alarm or concern. Although these events are not related to IUSD, the Police Department has an increased police presence around our school sites.  We will continue to work closely with the Irvine Police Department and other agencies to monitor and ensure the safety of our schools. We recognize that the events in Los Angeles are distressing and may generate strong emotional reactions, but we want to reiterate that there is no evidence to indicate that Irvine has reason for concern.  Our schools are open.  Should students need support or counseling, we have resources available at each school site. If there are any updates, we will share them with you.  In the meantime, I encourage you to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.  In addition to regular updates about our District, we use these sites to provide real-time updates during emergencies. Thank you for your support. Sincerely,
