Protecting the health, safety, and wellbeing of our school community remains our top priority as we continue full-time in-person learning. Students and staff members have been diligent and are following the safety protocols recommended by the Fresno County Department of Public Health. We are asking for each family’s help as we work to keep our campuses safe.
Help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our school community by screening your student(s) before school each day. Do not send your student to school if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Fever of 100 degrees or higher
- (Persistent) cough
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Muscle or body aches
- Vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, or abdominal pain
- Runny nose, congestions, itchy or red eyes, or chills
Do not send your student to school if they have been identified as a close contact or have had possible exposure to a COVID-19 case and are awaiting COVID-19 test results.
Please contact the office at 305-7230 to inform us of your student’s absence.
COVID-19 testing is available for family members at multiple locations throughout Fresno County. Locally tests are available at any Adventist Health and United Health Clinics. Please visit the Fresno County Department of Public Health website for more information and to find the testing facility closest to you: https://www.co.fresno.ca.us/departments/public-health/covid-19/covid-19-testing-sites
Tests can be purchased at CVS, Rite Aid, and Walmart.
As a reminder, COVID-19 vaccines are available at no cost to anyone 12 years of age or older. While younger children diagnosed with COVID-19 generally have mild symptoms or remain asymptomatic, they can still transmit the virus to more vulnerable populations such as those with preexisting conditions.
