REQUIRED ACTIONS – CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19)

March 7, 2020

Dear Santa Clara Unified Community:

Santa Clara Unified School District, Santa Clara County Office of Education, and Santa Clara County Public Health Department continue to work together in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

This is a critical moment in the growing outbreak of COVID-19 in Santa Clara County. The public health department has issued updated recommendations that are meant to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, reduce the number of people infected, and protect those who are most vulnerable to severe illness.

Santa Clara Unified School District is implementing required actions in accordance with Santa Clara County Public Health Department recommendations. We are fully aware of the disruptions these required actions will cause. These required actions were determined using all currently available information and the fact that nothing exceeds the importance of the health and well-being of our students, families, and staff.

We have successfully navigated challenges of this nature before. Those prior experiences have us well prepared for COVID-19. We have the supplies we need; our staff knows what to do; our school nurses are best in class. You are essential to all of our preparation proving effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19.

We need your full cooperation:
  • Read all communications carefully
  • Adhere to all of the required actions
  • Support that exceptions cannot be made to the required actions
  • Go to the SCCPHD Coronavirus webpage for more information on COVID-19
  • Go to our SCUSD Cold and Flu webpage for our latest updates
  • Understand we are working proactively on behalf of our entire community and that responses to individual situations will not be possible at this time

Once again, we understand the disruptions these required actions will cause. Thank you for putting the health and well-being of our community first. Thank you for your support of Santa Clara Unified School District, Santa Clara County Office of Education, and Santa Clara County Public Health Department. We will get through this
challenge together.

Sincerely,

<Signed>
