When we come back to school, it is important to protect the health and safety of everyone in our Class Family Group. New CA guidelines released on July 17 may require semi-monthly staff testing. LA County is working on making this available to schools as quickly as possible.
LA County Health Department Guidelines:
If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID, we will call the health department Communicable Disease Program. They will advise if we need to close a classroom (Class Family Group) or campus and for how long.
Contact Tracing – We will immediately identify and notify any other students, staff, or other individuals who may have been in close contact.
Transparent Communication – We cannot disclose the identity of the student, staff, or family member with COVID or COVID exposure. However, we will let the class and anyone with possible exposure know that there was a case, and we will trace individual contacts that may require additional follow up, testing, and/or self-quarantine.
Current guidelines for self-quarantine: 10 days from the start of symptoms and 3 days from that last date of symptoms.
If a student or staff member tests positive.
If a student or staff member has been exposed to someone who tests positive (more than 10 minutes of close contact-less than 6 feet distance indoors).
All adults (parents/staff) and children 3 years old and up will need to wear masks while on campus, starting from when they enter the school grounds in the parking lot. Therefore Green and Orange Class children will be required to wear face masks at all times. Red Class children will however be practicing wearing a mask and won’t be required to wear one all day.
Children that wear a Face Shield will have to ALSO wear a fitted cloth face mask with their shield. Science indicates that face shields do not protect others from aerosols the way masks do and that they should be used as an addition to masks.
