RE: COVID-19 Protocols and Schools Resuming for Instruction

Dear WVUSD Parents and Guardians,

We hope you and your family enjoyed the holiday break and are safe and well.

The safety and well-being of our students and staff remain our top priority.   As we have communicated since the start of this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to monitor and follow the guidelines and recommendations of local and state entities, including the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) and the Governor’s office. Throughout the winter break, we have been in communication with Public Health. All safety recommendations and multipronged protocols adhering to Public Health continue to be implemented as we welcome students back for in-person instruction on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

The following guidelines and recommendations from Public Health are:

  •      Students are strongly recommended to wear single-use medical masks instead of cloth masks.
  •      Masks are strongly recommended to be worn outdoors when social distancing is not possible (except when actively drinking or eating).
  •      School districts should continue to provide COVID-19 testing for close contacts.
  •      School districts should continue to provide access to vaccines.

Information on the next vaccine clinic, scheduled for Saturday, January 8, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Diamond Bar High School, will be sent to all WVUSD parents and guardians.

COVID testing for students will be available beginning Tuesday, January 4, 2022. Detailed information is on our District website https://www.wvusd.org/

As service and additional safety measures for students, the California Department of Public Health is sending school districts an at-home Rapid Antigen test kit for every TK- 12th-grade student attending public schools. These at-home tests are optional for parents to use for their student(s) and are a one-time supplement only to augment our current testing regiment. Once WVUSD receives its shipment of the at-home Rapid Antigen test kits, all parents and guardians will receive detailed information on how to pick up the kit for their student(s).

WVUSD continues to implement the following safety measures and mitigations:

  •      Mandatory masks for all students and staff while indoors.
  •      Masks outdoors when social distancing is not possible (except when actively drinking or eating).
  •      Minimize large gatherings (i.e., WVUSD has canceled Open House for the 2021/2022 school year).
  •      Close contact tracing for all confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.
  •      Adherence to Public Health’s guidelines on quarantine protocols for exposed individuals.
  •      Frequent hand washing and/or use of hand sanitizer.
  •      Central air filtration for HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems uses filters with an efficiency reporting value (MERV) of 13.

 

We thank you for your support and help in following the guidelines from Public Health to optimize the health and safety of all students and staff.

Please continue your part in keeping safety and wellbeing our top priority by adhering to the following guidelines:

  •      Check your child’s symptoms daily before sending them to school.
  •      Keep your child at home if your child presents COVID-like symptoms (fever 100.4° or higher, new cough, diarrhea, vomiting) and consult with your medical provider or contact our district nurse for guidance.
  •      Provide a single-use medical face mask for your student to wear to school every day.
  •      Remind your student to wash and/or sanitize their hands frequently.

If you have any questions, please utilize the Let’s Talk! feature on our District’s website.

We thank you for your continued support and understanding as we provide a safe learning environment for all students. We wish you and your family a healthy and safe 2022.

Thank you,

WVUSD Educational Services

关于COVID-19协定和学校继续教学

 

敬爱的 WVUSD 家长和监护人,

希望您和您的家人度过快乐平安的假期。

自从这场史无前例的 COVID-19 大流行开始以来,学生和教职员工的安全和福祉一直是我们的首要任务。目前依然如此,我们将继续监控并遵循包括洛杉矶县公共卫生局(公共卫生)和州长办公室等地方和州机构的指导方针和建议。整个寒假期间,我们都保持与公共卫生局的联系。在欢迎学生于 2022 1 4 日星期二回来接受面对面教学的同时,我们也将继续实施所有符合公共卫生的安全建议和多方面的协定。

 

以下是来自公共卫生的指导方针和建议:

  •      强烈建议学生戴一次性医用口罩,不要戴布口罩。
  •      在户外无法保持社交距离时,强烈建议也必须戴口罩(在喝水和进食时除外)。
  •      学区应继续为密切接触者提供 COVID-19 检测。
  •      学区应继续提供疫苗接种。

下一个学区疫苗接种定于 2022 1 8 日星期六,上午 9:00 至下午 12:00Diamond Bar 高中。 此信息将会发送给所有 WVUSD 家长和监护人。

2022 14 日星期二开始就可以有对学生的 COVID 测试。详细信息请上访我们的District website https://www.wvusd.org/ 网站

为了给学生提供服务和额外的安全措施,对在公立学校就读的 TK-12年级的学生,加州卫生部会发送给学区居家快速抗原检测试剂盒。家长可以给他们的学生选用此一次性的补充居家检测剂以增强我们当前的测试量。一旦WVUSD 收到家用检测试剂盒后,接着所有家长和监护人都会收到有关如何为学生领取试剂盒的详细信息。

WVUSD 继续实施以下安全和缓解措施。

  •      在室内时,所有学生和教职员工必须戴口罩。
  •      在户外无法保持社交距离时,必须戴口罩(喝水和进食时除外)
  •      减少大型聚会( 所以WVUSD 取消了 2021/2022 学年的开放日)。
  •      对所有COVID-19阳性确诊病例进行密切接触者追踪。
  •      遵守公共卫生有关暴露风险的个人隔离协议指导方针。
  •      经常洗手和/或使用消毒性洗手液。
  •      中央空气过滤系统的HVAC(供暖、通风、空调)请使用效率报告值 (MERV) 为 13 的过滤器。

 

为了最有效地维持所有学生和教职员工的健康和安全,我们感谢您的协助和全面配合遵循公共卫生指南。

请遵守以下准则,继续将安全和福祉作为我们的首要任务:

  •      每天孩子上学前,请检查孩子是否有症状。
  •      如果您的孩子出现类似 COVID 的症状(发烧 或更高、新的咳嗽、腹泻、呕吐),请让您的孩子待在家里,并咨询您的医疗提供者或联络学区护士以寻求建议。
  •      提供一次性医用口罩,让您的学生每天戴着上学。
  •      提醒您的学生勤洗手和/或用有消毒性的洗手液清洁手。

如果您有任何问题,请使用我们学区网站上 Let’s Talk!

一直以来我们都为所有学生提供安全的学习环境,也感谢您一直以来的支持和理解,也祝福您和您的家人有个健康安全的 2022 年。

谢谢,
