COVID-19 Test Kits
Updated Covid Guidelines
Because our students wear masks indoors and outdoors except when eating, most of our in-school exposures are mask-on-mask. Therefore, students who have been exposed at school and are asymptomatic qualify for modified quarantine (see below). The following information explains what to do if your student is exposed at school.
Vaccinated Students OR those previously infected within last 90 days:
- Quarantine is NOT recommended. Students without symptoms may remain in school and participate in all school activities. If symptoms develop, they should test and stay home.
Unvaccinated/Never Infected when both parties were wearing a mask, as required in K-12 indoor settings.
- Modified quarantine as follows. They may continue to attend school for in-person instruction if they:
i. Are asymptomatic.
ii. Continue to appropriately mask, as required.
iii. Undergo at least twice weekly testing during quarantine; and
iv. Continue to quarantine for all extracurricular activities at school, including sports, and activities within the community setting.
Unvaccinated/Never Infected No Masks (students who were not wearing masks or for whom the infected individual was not wearing a mask during the exposure);
- Standard quarantine (i.e., Quarantine can end after day 5 if symptoms are not present and a diagnostic specimen collected on day 5 or later tests negative. If unable to test or choosing not to test, and symptoms are not present, quarantine can end after day 10.
If you test positive for COVID-19, everyone, regardless of vaccination status must follow the CDPH Guidance on Isolation and Quarantine for the General Public.
PA meeting will be next Thursday, February 3rd, 2022 at 8:45 a.m. on campus. We will be discussing our upcoming fundraising events. Also, formalizing the committees to help with the coordination and organization of VCS Annual Creek Clean-a-Thon.
If you are not able to attend this meeting but want to help, please contact Crisarlin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all you do to keep our community safe.
