School Site COVID Testing for 11/30/21

To register for COVID-19 testing, please use this link:

If you or your child are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, do not come to school for testing. Stay home. You can come to the PUSD Primary Care Clinic at 351 S. Hudson Ave. Please call 626-396-3600 ext 88180 for an appointment.

Please do not send your child to school if they have the following symptoms. Runny nose, fever, cough, headache, stomach ache.

This is the reason we ask for the passcode which means your child has done the screening at home before coming to school. If someone else is bringing your child to school, please give them the passcode in case your child forgets it. The passcode is in English and Spanish. The main point is to ensure your child is healthy enough to come to school keeping them safe and their classmates safe.

There are 3 options when returning to school.

1) Test and return with a negative result and no symptoms

2) Get a doctor's clearance

3) Stay home for 10 days.

Send the negative result or doctor’s note to the health office before your child returns to school

Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months, recovered, and are not showing any symptoms, are not recommended to test.

Thank you for your cooperation!

A Special Message From Our Choir Director, Aimee Cunningham

I hope this email finds you healthy and well!

Pasadena Department of Public Health has determined it is safe for kids to sing in groups (with precautions). Attached here is a survey / form for fall 2021 choir. This form is intended for me to gauge the interest level for choir as we ease out of the Covid restrictions for gathering and singing. The number of students interested will determine if, how, when, and where our choir will meet. This form is not a commitment, just an interest survey.

Please don't hesitate to send me any questions. I apologize if I am sending this email to you twice. I'm working off a couple of spreadsheets.

Miss you all and see you tonight at the Back to School Social!
