Principal's Message

HELLO TIGER FAMILIES:
 
The following information is to provide you with guidance regarding COVID-19 Exposure Management protocols and procedures for the Second Semester of the 2021-2022 academic year. *These guidelines are based on the latest information from the Los Angeles County Department of Health as of January 12, 2022, and are subject to change with updated Health Orders. 

Prior to Winter Break, ALL  "close contacts" were required to quarantine and students who tested positive were required to quarantine 10 days. 

The following  new policies are now in effect for all Los Angeles Unified sites. Modified Quarantine for TK-12 Students ("Test to Stay"): Modified quarantine allows asymptomatic TK-12 students who were exposed to a person with diagnosed COVID-19 in any school setting to continue in-person academic activities.

 Shortened Isolation for Positive Individuals: Individuals who test positive may be released from isolation on Day 6, provided any symptoms are improving, they are fever-free for the past 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and they have a negative (antigen) test result from a test taken on or after Day 5.

 Shortened Quarantine for Close Contacts: Asymptomatic individuals who are identified as close contacts can be released from quarantine protocols on Day 6, provided they remain asymptomatic and have a negative test result from a test taken on or after Day 5. Tests can be either PCR or rapid antigen.

Updated Quarantine Guidance for Household Close Contacts: Individuals with a sibling
or household member who tests positive must remain at home for a minimum of 10 days
following the date of the household member’s positive test, and begin their official quarantine
period (Day 1) on the date that the positive individual is cleared to return to school or work. Household close contacts are not eligible for modified (in-school) quarantine, unless they are
exempt from quarantine based on vaccination status or recent previous infection.

Updated Quarantine Exemptions: Individuals who are fully vaccinated (including a booster, if eligible, for employees), as well as individuals recovered from a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 case in the past 90 days, are exempt from quarantine. All other individuals are subject to quarantine protocols which may include modified quarantine.

Please see the Quarantine Protocols for Students and Employees graphic for more information. (Refer to attachments below)
(protocols can also be accessed on the LAUSD website)
 
Students MUST have a daily pass in order to enter campus.

If your child does not have a daily pass please come to the office.  Staff at the gates do not have a list of students that are allowed or disallowed.

If you have any questions the CET can be contacted at 213-725-5637 
Mon. – Fri.  hours-6a.m-9p.m and Sat. and Sun. 8:30a.m. – 4:30p.m

Keeping our schools safe is a top priority. Thank you for doing your part in helping to keep SOEC safe.
