NOVEL CORONAVIRUS

Coronavirus Updates

Should I expect a response from the District for my general questions, requests, and suggestions?

No. Due to the volume of emails, it is not realistic to expect personal responses at this time. Themes of questions or thoughts will appear in the FAQ page. If you have specific information regarding the health of a child or adult, please contact your site immediately. Like the District, general questions should not expect an immediate response. The staff is dedicating their time to planning and working with agencies proactively.

If I elect to keep my child at home, can my child receive online instruction?

No. The district is not equipped at this time to provide online instruction to students at home. Class materials and/or projects may be provided to students via paper copy or through email.

Will families be notified if a VCUSD staff member or student tests positive with COVID-19?

If a VCUSD staff member or student tests positive with COVID-19 the Solano County Public Health Department will notify the Superintendent, at which time a communication plan will be put into action to notify the appropriate individuals affected.

Are schools going to close?

No. The school and District actions at this time are to prepare for the possibility of widespread transmission of COVID-19 should an outbreak occur.

What can I do to ensure the safety of myself and others?

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home when you are sick. Cover coughs and sneezes. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects. Wash hands often with soap and water.

Are additional cleaning measures in place?

Custodial staff at every VCUSD school continues to follow the recommended cleaning procedures daily, with extra effort on areas considered high-risk (e.g., bathrooms, cafeteria/kitchen, health room/nurse's office) and high-touch points (e.g., door handles, hand railings, lockers, and shared desks).
