Keeping our School Community Healthy

Hello SBUSD families. Over the past few days we have seen an increase in positive Covid cases in Humboldt County, as well as on our campuses. There is also a terrible cold going around. To ensure that everyone is as safe as possible on campus, please keep your student home if they have any cold/Covid symptoms. We will test students upon their return to school to best ensure the health of our students and staff. Thanks for your understanding and assistance maintaining the health of our school community!

Vaccinations Available

If your family is interested, vaccinations for individuals aged 5 years and older are available at numerous locations in Humboldt County. Please follow THIS LINK to make an appointment or access a variety of information related to Covid vaccinations.
