COVID-19 Safety Plan & Resources
The San Carlos School District continues to plan, prepare for, and implement its instructional programs and school operations in response to conditions and requirements emanating from the COVID-19 pandemic. In line with state and county public health guidelines, SCSD is moving towards safely reopening our school campuses to resume on-site, in-person teaching, and learning.
Please take advantage of the no-cost surveillance COVID-19 testing provided by the San Mateo County Health Department.
Please sign up for weekly testing for yourself and your child.
Contact your health provider for a test if you have symptoms or know you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Keeping COVID cases off of our campuses will keep our in-person learning possible. As a reminder, if a student or teacher tests positive for COVID, we will need to transition that cohort back to distance learning for at least two weeks to avoid spreading the virus.
Sign up at one of the following locations to begin your regular weekly testing:
Positive COVID cases are reported to San Mateo County Health, per the county's Pandemic Recovery Framework (PRF). Case notifications are provided to the appropriate cohorts and school communities. No identifying details about individuals reporting cases will be provided to the public.
This data is being reported beginning the week that SCSD students returned to campus for in-person learning - Monday, February 22, 2021. This form will be updated weekly on Fridays. This data only includes individuals who were on campus during a time when the county health department would consider them infectious for COVID-19.
