COVID-19 Corner  
We are ecstatic that Dr. Maggie Park and the California Department of Public Health has approved our School District reopening. Thank you to parents and staff.
The District has been meeting with Dr. Maggie Park, San Joaquin County Public Health Officer, every other week and following the California Department of Public Health Guidelines for School Reopening. 
We know that COVID-19 has made our school year look a little different, so we have been flexible and have worked to assess, develop and plan for our school district. 

We need your help!  Together we can curb COVID-19 by taking 4 easy steps:       COVID-19 check.PNG

1)  When schools reopen, please check your child BEFORE sending them to school.
     * In the morning, ask you child how they are feeling?  If they report they do not feel well, please do not send them to school.

     *If they report any unexplained signs or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not send them to school
       COVID-19 symptoms include:
       *Fever of > 100.4                                            *Unexplained Cough                          *Unexplained Diarrhea
       *Unexplained  Runny Nose/Congestion       *Unexplained Chills                            *Unexplained Fatigue
       *New Loss of Taste and Smell                     *Unexplained Nausea/Vomiting          *Unexplained Headaches,
       *Unexplained Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing                                           Muscle or Body Aches

2)  Minimize potential exposures/close contact, that is less than six feet contact for more than 15 minutes, with others. Encourage your child to maintain
physical distance (6 feet) from others. As the parent, guardian, caregiver, you can model this action.  Data shows that some people do not know they have COVID-19 so the best approach, as a general precaution, is to make sure they practice keeping physical distance from others.  

3)  Ensure your child washes their hands, uses face coverings as recommended, and avoids touching their face. Germs live everywhere and washing our hands is an important link in breaking the infection chain. Model good hand washing behavior to your family.  Provide friendly reminders to your family to wash their hands.  Washing your hands for 20 seconds has been shown to be the most effective way to eliminate germs in our surroundings.

4)  Talk to your child about COVID-19. This has been a stressful time for students and families. Children may feel isolated from others. Listening to what your child has to say can make a huge difference.  Consider playing a taking time to do an activity with them (cards, play doh, making beads, building legos). These are fun activities that your child can do that may open the door to conversation.  The California School Nurses Organization has worked with the California Counselors Association to bring you a website that has counseling resources.
