Nurse’s Corner: Remember to screen every day!

Protecting the health, safety, and wellbeing of our school community remains our top priority as we welcome students back to full-time, in-person learning. We have implemented updated COVID-19 safety protocols in alignment with CDPH and SCCPHD mitigation strategies to keep our students and staff safe while on campus. It will take a collaborative effort between home and school to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 on our campuses and ensure a successful school year.

Help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our school community by screening your student(s) before school each day. Do not send your student to school if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher
  • (Persistent) cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, or abdominal pain

Do not send your student to school if they have been identified as a close contact or have had possible exposure to a COVID-19 case and are awaiting COVID-19 test results.

Please contact your school site to excuse your student’s absence.

Free COVID-19 testing is available for family members at multiple locations throughout Santa Clara County. Please visit the Santa Clara County website for more information and to find the testing facility closest to you to schedule a test:

As a reminder, COVID-19 vaccines are available at no cost to anyone 12 years of age or older. While younger children diagnosed with COVID-19 generally have mild symptoms or remain asymptomatic, they can still transmit the virus to more vulnerable populations such as those with preexisting conditions. To learn more visit

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work to provide outstanding educational opportunities for all students.
