CUSD Families,

The California Department of Public Health has issued new guidance that allows a quicker and broader response to school COVID-19 exposures. Known as a Group Tracing Approach, CUSD will implement this guidance beginning tomorrow, Friday, January 14, 2022:

  •  Families of students who spend more than a total of 15 minutes within a 24-hour period in a classroom with someone positive for COVID-19 will receive a ParentSquare notification of the exposure. All students enrolled in the exposed class will receive a notification, whether or not they were present when the exposure occurred and regardless of vaccination status.  Previously, only “close contacts” (those within 6 feet of the positive person) were notified.
  • The ParentSquare notification will advise families of their options and how to access testing for exposed students. Families are encouraged to keep symptom-free students at school (Stay-at-School Option) and to pre-register for testing at https://my.primary.health/l/ceres-usd.
  • Exposed students who participate in testing may continue to take part in all school activities including sports and extracurricular activities, unless they develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.

As we continue efforts to keep CUSD schools open and safe for in-person learning, we want to thank you for your ongoing support.

CUSD Families,

We hope you enjoyed happy and healthy holidays. With students back at school after the winter break, we want to update you regarding changes to California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidance regarding isolation of students who test positive for COVID-19. (At this time, quarantine guidance is unchanged for students exposed at school but not positive.)

ISOLATION = Student tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, previous infection, or lack of symptoms:

  • Must stay home for at least 5 days (shortened from 10 days)
  • May return to school after day 5
    • If symptoms are not present or are resolving; AND
    • With a negative COVID-19 test administered on day 5 or later*
*Students may return after day 10 without a negative test if symptoms are not present or are resolving. If fever is present, isolation should continue until fever resolves.
