COVID-19 SCHOOL Guidance and Information

COVID-19 SCHOOL Guidance and Information

 
San Dieguito Union High School District's focus opening the 2020-21 school year was on implementing our Distance Learning Model with daily live interaction and instruction. Understanding the challenges and barriers to meaningful on-campus, in-class, instruction based on the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Mandate and Guidelines for K-12 Schools, at a Special Board Meeting on July 30, the Board of Trustees took the following action:
 
“San Dieguito Union High School District will operate on the Distance Learning Model for the entirety of the first quarter of the 2020-21 academic year, and consistent with the California Department of Public Health Mandate/Guidelines and the San Diego County Public Health Order when the district is allowed, to bring students on campus, although remaining in the Distance Learning Model, by prioritizing special education students, English Language Learners, high-risk students, students with inadequate learning environments, and then all other students."

Coping & Managing Stress

Feelings of stress, anxiety, or other depression-like symptoms are common reactions during and after the uncertainty of any natural or human-caused incident. Limiting exposure to media and creating a routine with opportunities for varied activities and breaks from "screen time" has been shown to assist people with coping. Here is an example of a suggested daily home schedule during school closure.
 
Talk with your family about how they are feeling and follow guidance to reduce the effects of stress on your physical and emotional health.

Prevention of COVID-19

Prevention: How to Stay Healthy and Prevent the Spread of Virus
Please follow these approaches to protect yourself from the virus (CDPH, 2020):
  • Wash your hands with soap and water.  Review Handwashing: A Family Activity
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay away from other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
  • Additional Cleaning of Surfaces - Clean daily with an added emphasis on all high-touch surfaces (door handles, phones, etc.). 
Stay Home if you are Sick - As part of preventative measures recommended by the county and state public health departments, stay home if you are sick, especially if it includes a fever and/or coughing. Be sure to:
  • Remain at home until your fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
  • Seek immediate medical care by calling your physician if symptoms become more severe, such as with a high fever or if you have difficulty breathing. 
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, coughing, and/or shortness of breath) and may have had contact with a person with COVID-19 or recently traveled to countries with apparent community spread, call your healthcare provider or local public health department first before seeking medical care so that appropriate precautions can be taken. CDC Resources for Home
