Any student should stay home if they are not feeling well. If you or your child are feeling ill, immediately get tested at one of the San Mateo County COVID-19 test sites. We will continue to implement our layered system of mitigation strategies to keep everyone safe and healthy:
Wearing a mask at all times, except when eating
Routine hand washing and sanitizing
Cleaning/disinfecting of our facilities
Enhanced ventilation of classrooms
Weekly pooled testing at school. Visit our Pooled Testing web page or come to our school office to receive a paper consent form.
K New Student Information: Virtual Meeting
Soul Shoppe Virtual Assembly Today
- 5-Finger Breathing
- Dragon Breathing
- Cooling Down a Bowl of Soup Breathing
Our students also learned how to advocate for themselves
- Move your body (dance, exercise, walk)
- Breath (pick a type of breathing)
- Express your feelings (aloud or in writing)
- If it feels like nothing is working, try a different way
The social-emotional well-being of our students is important now more than ever. Our students really enjoyed this virtual assembly. Thank you to Souls Shoppe for always providing fun and interactive assemblies!
Community Exposure - Close Contact Letters
- Why do we get more than one letter in one week? Each time we have a confirmed case, we must send a letter to our community. We try to wait until late afternoon so that we can send one letter with exposure dates and classroom numbers on the letter.
- What does the exposure date mean? The exposure date is the last day the positive case was in the classroom.
- What do I do if I can't find a rapid test for my child? The office can test your child if they need to be tested to return to the classroom.
- If I receive a letter, does that mean there was a positive case in my child's classroom? No, we are required to send a letter to our school community about a positive case on our campus. We are also responsible to notify families that there was a positive case in their child's classroom. The letter will list classrooms that had a positive case.
The week of January 17th, we will do our Pool Testing on Wednesday, 1/19 since we don't have school on Monday.
Students who have tested positive for Covid will not participate in pool testing for 3 months. The office will be monitoring students that should not test.
I highly encourage families to have their children participate in pooled testing. This is an effective screening tool to test students.
