In case you missed it:
Pfizer Vaccine Approval for 12+: It’s now official. Pfizer is approved for ages 12 and up. “The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, after a thorough review of the evidence from the clinical trial of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for those 12-15 years of age, concludes the vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and supports its use. Expanding COVID-19 vaccination to anyone 12 years of age and above will both protect those who are vaccinated and contribute to control of the COVID-19 pandemic in our states.” Click HERE for the Vaccine Information Sheet that includes more information.
Notify of COVID-19 Exposure: If a member of your household has been exposed to COVID-19 or has tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please be sure to email [email protected] so we can partner to follow the quarantine or isolation guidelines. Also, if you student has had any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 24 hours, please email [email protected] and your student’s teacher so your student can participate in Distance Learning until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
Office Schedule: During Level 3: Baseline, our office is open and welcoming one family at a time from 8:00 am to 1:15pm. If you need to pick up a missed Distance Learning Kit pick up, please come to the office from 8:00 am to 1:15 pm. For virtual support, you can call 916-567-5760 or email [email protected].
