Covid-19 / Corona Virus: Updates and Monitoring

This webpage is updated regularly to reflect current changes from the CA Department of Public Health and the Governors office. 

Our school model is uniquely arranged to continue to support students during this time of global pandemic. While ensuring the health and safety of our staff and students, providing and documenting a consistent and effective learning program for students is crucial to our mission as public school educators. Upon these recommendations, if a student resides within a county that is in the widespread (purple) category on the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy or there is a statewide “Stay-at-Home” order, in-person instruction is prohibited according to the Governor’s orders and the following virtual protocols must be followed:

  • All meetings between vendors/staff and students should be virtual
  • Staff will pick up and drop off curriculum in person
    • ESs will arrange a contactless “porch dropoff” and/or “porch pickup” of curriculum with the family
    • Curriculum should be left outside and the staff should make phone contact with the person receiving the curriculum to verify they receive it
    • Used curriculum will be shipped from our school resource library
  • Staff will not submit POs for in-person services

When a student resides within a county where schools are able to open to in-person instruction (i.e. in the “substantial” [red] category or lower on the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy for 14 or more days) the following will occur:

  • In person meetings between certificated staff and students can occur
    • Both the ES and student must reside in a county that allows in-person meetings in order for an in-person Learning Record meeting to take place
  • Vendor services can take place in person in one-on-one or small group settings
    • The appropriate size of a small group may vary depending on the location the group is meeting but must be less than 14 people
    • POs should be placed for one month at a time in case the county goes back on the watchlist
  • When an in-person meeting occurs, it must follow CDPH guidelines including but not limited to: health check screening, face coverings, social distance, and sanitizing
    • Students in grade TK-2 are not required to wear face coverings (per state guidelines) but are strongly encouraged to do so
    • If a vendor is not following the appropriate public health protocols the family must inform their ES. If a family is not following the appropriate public health protocols the vendor must inform the school
  • 48 hours or less before each in-person meeting both the ES and the student/parent will fill out a health screener. This health screener will reiterate our in-person meeting safety practices and ask questions related to reducing the risk of COVID spread to our staff and our students. The ES will send parents the link to the health screener. 
  • Staff will pick up and drop off curriculum in person
    • Curriculum should be left outside of the building and the staff should make contact with the person receiving the curriculum to verify they receive it
    • Interacting while the receiving person is inside the building, and the staff member dropping off the curriculum may occur if the staff member remains outside with social distance between the two people
  • In person meetings cannot take place if any of the persons participating in the meeting: 
    • Have a fever, chills, coughing or any COVID related symptoms.
    • Have a known close contact exposure to COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

When a county moves into the widespread (purple) category on the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, in-person meetings and educational services should transition to virtual meetings and services. Otherwise in-person vendor service POs need to be canceled.

If a family becomes infected with COVID they should inform their ES and Special Education provider and cease any in-person meetings/services until they have quarantined for a minimum of 14 days and are medically cleared.
