COVID-19 Information and Protocols

If your child is ill with cough, fever, sore throat, headache, and/or body aches, please test them for COVID-19 before sending them to school.  If your child tests negative, but still feels ill, consider keeping them home and testing again in 2-3 days, or consult your child's physician.  You may also consult our Guidelines for Keeping Ill Children at Home.  

If your child has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please monitor your child for symptoms.  They may remain in school unless they develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.  If they develop symptoms of COVID-19, they should test and mask right away.  Home test kits are available at the school site upon request. 

If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please keep them home and notify the attendance office and school nurse as soon as possible.  

  • Your child may return to school following these guidelines:
    • Symptoms are mild and improving AND your child has been fever free for 24 hours without use of fever reducing medication.
    • Your child should wear a mask when they are indoors around other people for 10 days.  Day 0 is symptom onset date or positive test date (if no symptoms). 
    • They may remove their mask sooner than 10 days if they have two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. 
  • For more details, please see the Isolation Guidance from California Department of Public Health (CDPH).  

Homework:  Your child should email their teachers to get work and assignments.

Feel free to reach out to the school nurse with any questions or concerns.  Contact Us.
