Cleaning and Sanitizing: We are continuing our cleaning/disinfecting/HVAC filter replacement procedures from last year.
Meals: School meals will be served in the cafeteria. Meals will be eaten outside when possible. Indoor seating will be discouraged.
COVID Testing and Vaccinations: We will continue to provide COVID testing whenever needed or appropriate – details will be forthcoming. Though we are no longer offering vaccines, anyone still needing a vaccine can check for locations at this site: https://covid19.lacounty.gov/testing/
Exposure Management: We are following the relevant LACDPH protocol which addresses how we respond to positive cases and/or close contacts. The current version of that plan from LACDPH is linked from the “COVID Communications” section of our website: https://www.ccusd.org/apps/pages/COVID-Updates
