Gateway High School

Dear Mt. Diablo Unified School District Families:


All schools in Mt. Diablo Unified will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 16, 2018, due to air quality conditions. The forecasted air quality for tomorrow is projected to be at a more hazardous level; we also are concerned with the cumulative effect of poor air quality.  


We thank you and your families for your patience during what has been a very difficult time for our Northern California communities, and wish you a restful Thanksgiving.
