Dear Cavalier Families,

Students who complete the assigned Achieve 3000 article every week and pass the quiz with a 75% or higher have the choice of staying in Advisory class on Fridays or coming back out to the lunch area to enjoy music or an ASB planned activity after attendance has been taken. Students can read more than the assigned article! Please support our reading efforts at home!

UPDATED testing sites
(Updated September 17)
The COVID-19 virus is still actively impacting our community. Vaccination, mask wearing and testing are our main protections to stop the spread and ensure schools return to normal. Please view the COVID-19 Guide for Parents, English and Spanish.
Our district will continue to offer Rapid COVID testing, in partnership with San Diego State University (SDSU) and Communities Fighting COVID. Every month, the testing calendar will be posted on the district’s COVID website here: http://www.sweetwaterschools.org/covid-19-information/#rapidcovidtesting. Here is a link to Frequently Asked Questions regarding the COVID vaccine and here is the link for all COVID Testing Sites. We all know someone who has been personally affected by this virus. Please continue to wear masks, wash hands frequently and maintain social distancing to help prevent the spread of infection.
COVID-19 Positive Cases
If any student (vaccinated or unvaccinated, symptomatic or asymptomatic) is determined to be positive for COVID, that student must isolate at home for 10 calendar days.
COVID-19 Close Contacts
• If a student is confirmed VACCINATED and ASYMPTOMATIC, that student does NOT have to quarantine at home. VACCINATED close contact students may remain in school. Families and school personnel should monitor the student for any symptoms. The CDC and local health department are recommending, however, that even VACCINATED and ASYMPTOMATIC close contacts students take a COVID test between the 3rd -5th day.
• If close contact students are MASKED:
o UNVACCINATED and ASYMPTOMATIC students shall follow the Close Contact 10-day
monitoring protocol (Modified quarantine):
o Students may remain at school, in class for in-person instruction.
o Students MUST take COVID tests twice a week at least three days apart for a 10-day
interval (in consultation with site administration) and provide the NEGATIVE COVID test
result to school administration. (Students may NOT remain in school if they do not provide
NEGATIVE COVID test results.)
o Students may NOT participate in extracurricular activities and community activities Day 8.
To return on Day 8, they must produce a Negative COVID-19 Test on or after Day 6; absent
a Negative test they can resume after the 10-day period. Students MUST still conduct daily
o If students and/or family do not agree to the Close Contact 10-day monitoring protocol,
then they must quarantine for 10 calendar days at home and may return on Day 11, as long as the student is asymptomatic.
• If ANY student in a close contact situation is UNMASKED:
o UNVACCINATED and ASYMPTOMATIC students, per local health guidance, may NOT
participate in the 10-day modified quarantine or in-person instruction and MUST follow a
specified quarantine protocol (see your school nurse for specific details).
• If the COVID-19 exposure happens outside the school setting (i.e. household or community),
the student MUST quarantine at home for 14 days.
• Families with students who are close contacts will likely get a call from the County of San Diego to confirm a student was a close contact and may provide more restrictive guidance on what the modified quarantine requires outside of the school campus.
ALL SYMPTOMATIC CASES
- Any student (vaccinated or unvaccinated) having any symptoms should remain at home until the symptoms improve. If students are sent to school with symptoms or develop them while on campus, parents will be called to pick up student. The students may not remain in the classroom with symptoms. f the symptoms are related to COVID-19, a negative COVID-19 PCR test AND improved symptoms are required prior to return to school; OR the student may remain at home for 10 days.
