Students who test positive may not attend school. However, under the new guidance (Released January 12, 2022), quarantine can end after day 5 if symptoms are not present and the student tests negative. If unable to test, and symptoms are not present, quarantine can end after day 10, and the student can return to school on day 11.
The state’s mask requirement for vaccinated people in most indoor settings, not including schools, will lift on Feb. 16. While school mask rules won’t change on Feb 16, they are expected to change soon if conditions continue to improve. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
On January 12, 2022, the California Department of Public Health updated their K-12 School Guidance to address the COVID-19 surge. In response we have updated our protocol related to isolation, quarantine, and testing, as follows:
Prior to the updated guidance, students who tested positive were out of school for 10 days, at a minimum. Under the new guidance, students may return on Day 6 if they test negative on Day 5, and their symptoms have improved.
Any persons exhibiting any of the common COVID-19 symptoms (see below) or who have been exposed to someone with any of these symptoms should protect themselves and others by getting tested and by staying home until the symptoms are gone.
You are receiving this notification because your child has met the criteria for exposure (has spent more than a cumulative total of 15 minutes - within a 24-hour time period - in a shared indoor space) with someone with COVID-19 during their period of infectiousness.
Free at-home COVID-19 rapid tests are available for order and shipment through the United States Postal Service. Each order will contain 4 tests. There is a limit of 1 order per residential address. Additional tests cannot be ordered regardless of the size of the household.
