SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom's administration says all California schools should reopen when the new academic year begins next fall, reiterating his announcement earlier this month.

But his message remains merely a guideline, not a requirement.

Newsom has said he plans to lift most of California's coronavirus restrictions June 15 in an effort to reopen the state to business-as-usual. He has said there will be no barriers to fully reopening.

Yet many California schools have still not reopened or will offer only partial in-person learning when they do. Those that are offering in-person classes are largely elementary schools.

As expected, the northern California Red Flag Warning was cancelled a few hours early since the wind has weakened quickly compared to recent days. Our weather is still hot and very dry, so please continue to be cautious.
