New Isolation/Quarantine Guidelines and COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Tests Update
As communicated to our Staff and Parents/Guardians on Friday, January 14, 2022, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has updated the K-12 Guidance for Schools. Students and Staff have the option of continuing with a standard 10 days isolation/quarantine period, or choose to have a shortened 5 days isolation/quarantine period with a negative test and no fever and resolving symptoms. Additional days may be needed for Students or Staff members who are continuously exposed by living with a confirmed positive family member. The new isolation/quarantine protocol may be found on our website (www.centralsd.net
) in the COVID-19 section. Our school sites and HR department will continue to assist in calculating the return date for our Staff and Students. If your child is currently in isolation/quarantine and you would like information on how the new guidelines for shortened isolation/quarantine may allow your child to return to school earlier, please call your school.
The State provided at-home COVID-19 rapid tests for students attending In-person schooling have been distributed to our schools. Look for communication from your child’s school. Each student will be given 1 kit with 2 tests in each kit. An instructional video on how to administer the iHealth rapid test is on our website (www.centralsd.net
) in the COVID-19 section.
In addition, residential households in the U.S. can now order one set of 4 free at-home tests from the United States Postal Service (USPS). It is limited to one order per residential address and will ship free starting in late January. To order your free at-home COVID-19 test from the USPS, go to their website at https://special.usps.com/testkits
to complete the order form.
Attention CSD Parents and Guardians,
We are aware of rumors being spread through social media, especially TikTok, concerning threats of mass school violence tomorrow, December 17, 2021. This is a nationwide issue, with school districts as far away as the East Coast reporting the rumors. Additionally, although videos spreading the rumor are going viral, numerous searches by criminal intelligence authorities have been unable to locate any video containing any specific threats. Captain Perez of the Rancho Cucamonga Station and the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department are both aware of the rumors and investigating.
At this time, the threats do not appear to be credible. Law enforcement will continue to monitor the situation. Please speak with your child about using social media platforms mindfully and not sharing or reposting any information that may be inaccurate. As always, it’s important that if any student, parent, guardian, staff member or community member sees something suspicious to please report it to a trusted adult at school immediately or call local law enforcement.
We look forward to celebrating the final school day of 2021 with our students tomorrow. Thank you for your support.
