Welcome to the Health Department!
SPRING UPDATE:As we move forward through the spring we are seeing our counties making great strides in vaccination rates, limiting spread and decreased illness from COVID-19. Currently both our counties are presenting numbers that are on track to move us into less restrictive tiers soon. The CDC has recently given us some additional guidance related to vaccinations, mask use, quarantines and keeping safe. As recently as today we learned that all available vaccines are now approved for individuals 16 and older. Additionally, updated mask guidance and recommendations were shared from our California Department of Public Health. Any updates that impact our campuses will be shared here and through the weekly newsletters. There is also a link to our health and safety procedures from the main website page. This details all the specific actions and processes that we have in place to keep each of our campuses safe. There are no additional changes to our safety procedures planned for the remainder of the school year at this time.
*Students must complete a Daily Health Survey before coming to campus each day.
- fever over 100.4 degrees
- shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- new loss of taste or smell
- congestion or runny nose
- fatigue, muscle or body aches
- sore throat
**It is important to note that children who experience symptoms over the weekend, or during an instruction break with less than 10 days before the restart of school, should remain home and the absence must be reported.
Thank you again for your partnership with our procedures and wellness promotion requests. We are grateful for your support. Please feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Kids Health - What to Do if Your Child Is Sick from Kids Health which is a wonderful resource for parents and children on many health related topics. There is even a page explaining to kids why their skin gets wrinkly in water which might be fun with all the handwashing we are doing. They also have a page for kids on Covid that speaks to them in language meant specifically for a child. Coronavirus for kids.
