COVID-19 Information & Resource Center

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Information & Resource Center 

We thank you for your cooperation as we work to navigate the rapidly evolving updates regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our Magnolia family and the larger community is our top priority.

After consulting with our Magnolia Public Schools authorizers and local county public health officials, ALL Magnolia Science Academies across Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Diego will be closed effective Monday, March 16. Upon the guidance from state and local leadership, Magnolia Public Schools will continue physical school closure through at least May 5. This continues to be very fluid and can be extended depending on what is learned in the upcoming weeks. 

We will be regularly updating you with relevant information during the closure, including if there are any additional changes to the schedule. This difficult decision is aimed at supporting efforts taking place throughout the state, as California has entered a critical phase to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus. Resource: COVID-19 FAQs


How can I protect myself against the coronavirus?

Do the same things you would do to prevent getting or spreading the common flu. These include:

  • Regularly washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Avoiding unnecessary touching of your eyes, nose, or mouth after washing your hands.

  • Covering your sneeze or cough with a tissue or sleeve, not your hand.

  • Staying home if you have a fever, and until you no longer have a fever for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications).

  • Staying home when you are sick. 

What can I do to help?

At this time, the best thing that adults can do is model calm behavior. Each child has her/his own response to these types of news reports, and adults can support by staying informed with the most updated and accurate information and sharing this calmly with youth.



Everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. If you go out, keep at least 6 feet of distance.
