Illness and Symptom Communication

This time of year seems to be bringing runny noses, congestion, sniffles and allergy like symptoms, please see the most recent Decision Tree below and should your student have any of the symptoms please follow the steps listed:

  • Make administration and your teachers know if your student is not feeling well either by email or phone call
  • Provide your students PCR COVID test results to Ms. Corrales at
  • With a negative test result, your student may return to school 24 hours after the test was administered and the symptoms have started improving

We appreciate your understanding and patience in assisting us comply with the current county requirements and keeping our community healthy.  

Mask Requirement and Other School  COVID-19 Requirements

Our school will continue to adhere to state and local requirements, which continue to require the use of face coverings by all individuals while on school property.  We are aware that California will be sending out updated information in June.  We will keep you informed on any changes that may impact school operations.   In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Adela at
