COVID testing on campus

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. Thanks for your understanding and assistance with keeping our campuses as safe as possible and students learning in person!

South Bay Book Fair

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.

We invite you to visit our Scholastic In-Person Winter Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.

Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her/their child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair:

Book Fair Dates: December 6-10 (Parent Conference Week)

Shopping Hours: Recesses most days and after school (12:50 to 2:30)


On Monday, December 6, there will be a "preview day" when students can come to the Fair without money and see what is offered and they want to purchase. On Tuesday through Friday, only students with money will be admitted into the Book Fair.

We look forward to having you participate in our Fair, and remember, all purchases benefit our school!
