Gov. Gavin Newsom Says California Schools Likely Won't Reopen Before Summer

In what may come as a blow to both working and stay-at-home parents, California Governor Gavin Newsom has revealed the state's schools will likely remain closed through the end of the school year.

"I would plan and assume it is unlikely that many of these schools, few if any, will open before the summer break," Newsom said during a streaming press conference on Tuesday. "To six-plus million kids in our system and their families, they need to make some plans at a time when a lot of plans are already being curtailed."

The state has applied for a federal waiver that would excuse students from taking academic tests once schools reopen, he added.

But while the country continues to practice social distancing, and schools continue to close, Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams decided to start a Instagram and Facebook page called #SAVEWITHSTORIES to read books to children staying at home.

In partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry, they will offer stories on the social media pages to provide "a little fun, a little education, and a little distraction for kids and parents."
