  • Ebola Virus 
     
    The District shares your concerns regarding the Ebola virus. We have been in contact with the San Diego County Health Department and the San Diego County Office of Education regarding these concerns and have requested these agencies coordinate protocols and recommendations for schools to implement to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

    At this time, there are no confirmed cases of Ebola in San Diego County, and the Deputy Public Health Officer for the County of San Diego Dr. Eric McDonald has been very reassuring that at present we have nothing to worry about in the way of Ebola in San Diego. A recent report of a suspected case in Chula Vista proved to be without merit.

    We know that Ebola is not spread through the air, water, or food. It is only spread through direct contact with blood and body fluids of a person who is sick and exhibiting symptoms of Ebola.

    At this time, we are awaiting the protocols/recommendations from the San Diego County Health Department. All protocols/ recommendations will be implemented as we receive them, and we will share this information with our parents and staff.

    If you would like more information about Ebola, please visit the CDC website at:  http://www.cdc.gov .

    CAMPUS SECURITY
     
    All parents, volunteers, visitors must always check in/out at the front office, wear a visitor/volunteer badge, and sign in/out. Our staff highly values maximizing time on task in our learning environments, therefore please plan accordingly for pick up at dismissal. To protect instructional minutes and limit disruptions, plan on coming onto campus at 2:50 pm dismissal (Tuesdays at 1:35 pm). If any sooner, everyone must wait in the front grassy area, away from classrooms, until the dismissal bells rings. Additionally, students are not to enter/exit school grounds through the staff parking lot. Students may exit campus on the sidewalk in front of the school office and the sidewalk near the lunch area. During school hours, campus fences will be secured, and the only entrance onto campus is at the front of the school to check in/out at the front office. Thank you for your support and understanding with ensuring our scholars are safe.
