Gregory Gardens Elementary 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.

Gregory Gardens School opened its doors to students more than 60 years ago in March 1952.  In the 70's the campus was expanded, under the guidance of Robert Shearer, to include a state-of-the-art preschool for children with special needs.  Due to dwindling enrollment, Gregory Gardens Elementary School (which included grades K-8,) closed from 1982 to 1994. 


During those years Gregory Gardens Preschool remained open and became a nationally known program.  In 2009 Gregory Gardens Preschool was renamed Robert R. Shearer Preschool after its founder. 


Today, 18 years after re-opening, Gregory Gardens Elementary is once again a center of thriving community activity.  Together, Gregory Gardens Elementary, Robert Shearer Preschool and the Preschool Assessment Center form a diverse campus that provides unique opportunities for our students to interact with each other.
