COVID testing on campus
Coming back from winter break, we are encouraging students to get tested at home before returning to school, especially if they have had symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
Both school sites now have the ability to test students for the purpose of modifying quarantine for close contacts or when students return from being out sick. If your child is out sick they can return to school after 24 hours of being fever/symptom-free. With a signed consent form, students can complete a rapid antigen test, get Covid test results, and return to class within 15 minutes! This will reduce or eliminate the time students need to stay off campus while waiting for a negative test result.
For families that do not want to sign the consent form, we will continue to follow CDPH guidance on quarantine for unvaccinated individuals. THIS ARTICLE specifies the procedures we will continue to follow. Please review it again. Thanks for your understanding and assistance with keeping our campuses as safe as possible and students learning in person!

SB Winter Book Fair Success!
Thank you to everyone who supported the in-person and online Winter Scholastic Book Fair in December. It generated a lot of excitement with the students and it was a big success, with the library earning $707 to purchase new books! The next Book Fair will be in the spring. Thank you again for your support!
