Dear Saklan Community,
Our next all-school COVID-19 test date will be Tuesday, January 5th. There will be no online classes this day so that all students and staff can be tested here at Saklan between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm. Please sign up for a testing time that is convenient to your family on this SignUpGenius.
Upon arriving at school for the test, please plan on parking and walking your student to the testing tents. You will need to bring your child’s completed test authorization forms along with a copy of the front and back of their insurance card (if applicable) to the testing. Please be sure to include an email address on page one of the authorization forms (under Patient Information).
All students will need to receive a negative COVID-19 test result before returning to campus for in-person learning but do not necessarily have to test at Saklan. Please note that only results for COVID-19 test results for tests administered after January 4th will be accepted.
A Change in Quarantine Time
In line with the changes the CDC and Contra Costa County have made to quarantine guidance, Saklan is changing its quarantine policy from 14 days to 10 after exposure to COVID-19 or traveling.
How We Look at Symptoms
As a reminder, below are our criteria for when the school will be requiring a COVID-19 test.
If your child has one or more of the “Yellow Flag” symptoms (sore throat, runny nose, ache, fever of 100.4 or more, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), please follow the guidelines below.
