This is your source for current information on the school’s health guidelines and procedures. For questions please contact Vince d'Assis, Ivy Summers, or Susie Kohl.
Click here to download Staying Healthy, which describes in detail the measures we all need to take to keep our school community healthy. We update the guide as circumstances (and thus our guidelines) change. We ask that all parents, caregivers, and staff read Staying Healthy completely and refer to it often. We all share the responsibility for preventing the spread of contagion at our school.
If you have questions about our health-related policies and procedures, please contact Susie Kohl (preschool) or Vince d’Assis or Ivy Summers (elementary school).
Holiday gatherings and travel significantly increase the risk of the spread of disease at school. We understand that many families want to travel or gather with others outside their household “pods” during the Thanksgiving and winter breaks. Your household pod includes those you are currently quarantining with.
While we strongly encourage you to gather digitally rather than in person, we’re providing guidelines and rules for returning to school for families that attend gatherings or travel during the holidays.
UPDATED NOVEMBER 18
Air travel: If you travel by plane, you and your family will be required to quarantine from school for 14 days after you return.
Out-of-state travel: Any travel outside California requires a 14-day quarantine.
Family gatherings: If you attend a family gathering that doesn't allow you to stay six feet from those not in your family pod, you and your family will need to quarantine from school for 14 days after the event.
Guests in your home: If anyone outside your pod enters your home (e.g., visiting friends or family members), your entire household will need to quarantine for 14 days before your child can return to school, OR your guest will need to quarantine alone for 14 days before joining your household unit.
Indoor gatherings: Gathering indoors with people outside your immediate pod for more than 15 minutes total during a 24-hour period qualifies as exposure and will require you to quarantine from school for 14 days after the gathering.
Outdoor gatherings: You won’t be required to quarantine after an outdoor gathering as long as you’ve maintained social distance and worn masks when not eating.
Public gatherings: If you attend a public gathering that doesn’t allow you to maintain social distance (such as a Black Friday sale), you and your family will be required to quarantine from school for 14 days.
