Update from Banta Elementary School District Superintendent, Albert Garibaldi:

As we are all aware, we have had a very wet winter. Water levels in local rivers and waterways are up substantially and as a result, area levees are being observed closely. The district is in contact with our local levee district and is monitoring information from the San Joaquin County Office of Emergency Services. We want to assure you that we have plans in place to ensure the safety of our students if any situation develops that threatens a district school site. Currently, all schools remain in session and there has not been a breach of any levee in the district. If something changes, and any notification of an evacuation order within the district becomes necessary, we will provide prompt information to our families by phone and email and post updates on the schools’ websites and social media pages.

Thank you.

Albert Garibaldi
