We know that being sick is uncomfortable and doesn't support meaningful engagement in learning, so please have your child remain at home if they are experiencing illness symptoms.
Should you find that your child must miss a day of school to recover, please report the absence to our attendance line or email:
- (760) 966-4801
The following message information should be provided:
your name, child’s name, teacher’s name, date of absence, reason for absence
Students who have experienced illness may return to school once they have been fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours and their illness symptoms have improved. A negative covid test is recommended but NOT required.
When your child is ill with covid-related symptoms, exposed to covid, or has received a positive covid test...
OUSD has linked the illness and absence guidance on our district website under COVID-19 Guidelines. Please take some time to review this information that includes an updated decision tree, FAQs, and this digital decision tree to get a direct answer on what to do if you have been exposed or are experiencing symptoms.
OUSD will continue to provide free testing. You will find that schedule on the district website under Where Can I Get Tested. Please remember to register ahead of time.
We know this can be a confusing time and our office staff is here to help. In order for us to provide you with the detailed information you need for your child’s particular case, we will need to have a quick discussion with you. Please contact our health office at 966-4821.
Any paperwork related to covid test outcomes can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
