Coronavirus Update for WVUSD Parents

February 3, 2020

 

Dear Parents,

WVUSD continues to work closely to monitor the latest updates regarding the coronavirus and work closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Health (Public Health) to ensure the wellbeing of every student.  In L.A. County, as in counties across the U.S., the threat to the general public for contracting coronavirus remains low.  Below are revised health guidelines for schools from the Public Health Department.

 

Updated Guidelines for Schools

In response to new federal guidelines, the Public Health Department will exclude students under mandatory quarantine from school for 14 days from their last exposure.  Last exposure is defined as having traveled in China’s Hubei Province or having been in contact with a confirmed case of the coronavirus.  

 

Schools are not authorized to issue the mandatory quarantine; only the Public Health Department may do so.

 

Guidelines for WVUSD Students Under Mandatory and Self-Quarantine

Please know that the District is committed to maintaining the privacy of our students.  Our schools will work with students and their families, who are under mandatory or self-quarantine, with sensitivity and confidentiality.

 

Students under mandatory quarantine, as issued by the Public Health Department, will need clearance to return to school.  Schools will work with students to support their continued learning at home.  Related absences will be excused.

 

Students who recently returned from other parts of China may choose to self-quarantine.  Schools will work with students to support their continued learning at home. Related absences will be excused.

 

We thank you for your support as we keep our school communities healthy and safe.

 

 

敬爱的家长,

 

WVUSD会持续监控有关冠状病毒的最新资讯,并与洛杉矶县卫生署(公共卫生部门)密切合作,以确保每个学生的健康。与美国各县一样,在洛杉矶县内,冠状病毒对公众的感染威胁仍然很小。以下是公共卫生部针对学校修订的健康指南。

 

更新的学校指南

为了配合新的联邦指南,公共卫生部允许那些接受强制隔离的学生可以从他们最后一次接触开始算起离校14天;最后一次接触的定义是曾在中国湖北省旅行或与有确诊的冠状病毒的个案接触。

 

学校无权执行强制隔离;只有公共卫生部门可以这样做。

 

对强制性和自我隔离下WVUSD学生的指南

请放心,学区会维护我们学生的隐私,对接受强制性或自我隔离的学生和其家人,我们会以最敏感和不公开的方式与他们合作。

 

根据公共卫生部门的规定而接受强制隔离的学生,需要获得许可才能返回学校。学校将与学生合作,以协助他们在家继续学习;因自我隔离的缺席将被准假。

 

最近从中国其他地区返回的学生可以选择自我隔离。学校将与学生合作,以协助他们在家继续学习;因自我隔离的缺席将被准假。

 

感谢您的支持,保持我们的学校社区的健康和安全。
