At Home Test Kits for Students

  • January 7th, 2022

     

    Dear Parents/Guardians, 

    As you may know, California is encouraging all families to access at-home COVID-19 testing for their children as they return to school after the winter break. To help make this a reality, California is providing one at-home rapid test for each K–12 public school student. After several delays from the State, Cajon Valley was able to get enough kits for one test for each student in TK-10th grade. Unfortunately, our allotment does not include enough tests for our preschool students. 

    Cajon Valley Union School District will be distributing the tests to families at your child’s school site on Monday, January 10, 2022 from 1:00-3:00pm. This is a drive through pick-up, and supplies are limited to one test kit per TK-10 student enrolled in a CVUSD school. Additionally, If you have children enrolled in multiple schools in the District, your child’s tests were allocated to their school of attendance (not by family), so you will need to visit each student’s individual school site to collect the tests for your family. We apologize for any inconvenience, but this was necessary due to limited supply and the short timeline for distribution.

    While there is no statewide testing mandate for students returning to school, we encourage you to use the kits to test your children for COVID-19 as soon as you receive them to help keep in-person school safer for everyone. These tests are voluntary, and you are not required to pick up a test if you do not wish to have one. 

    Should your child test positive, please keep your student home from school and notify your doctor, the local health department, and your student’s school right away. This flier from the state explains how to share your student’s at-home COVID-19 test results with the local health department. If the results of your child’s at-home test are unclear, please contact your school to arrange for a new test. 

    If your student has symptoms (like cough and fever) or has been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please keep them home and use your COVID-19 testing kits. In addition, please call to notify us before they return, even if the test is negative– more testing may be needed. If your child’s test is negative, and your student feels well and has no COVID-19 symptoms, we look forward to welcoming them back to our campus. 

    Our students, employees, and families have been working tirelessly to keep schools both safe and open for in-person learning. Thank you for using the at-home tests as an additional tool in our toolbox to keep each other safe and to keep our classrooms open. 

    Please visit cajonvalley.net/covidtests for up to date testing information for Cajon Valley Union School District students and staff. 

    Sincerely,

    Ryan Satterfield

COVID Testing Update

  • Jan 5, 2022

    In order to support students safely remaining in school, the Cajon Valley Union School District is offering free COVID-19 testing for students during the school day!

    Cajon Valley Union School District continues to work with public health authorities, medical professionals, and scientific experts for a safe, responsible reopening in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to test for COVID regularly, including when a student is in close contact with a confirmed COVID-positive person at school (in-school exposure). For this reason, our district is offering free in-school testing for students who have been exposed as a close contact at school. We recommend that you opt in to our student testing program.

    Benefits of Testing

    • Students involved in an in-school exposure event may be eligible for “modified quarantine” if they are enrolled in the district's testing program. Modified quarantine allows your student to continue receiving in-person instruction.

    • Free Onsite Testing can help to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at school and home.

    Enrollment in Cajon Valley’s COVID-19 testing program ensures your student can participate in both Contact Tracing and Symptomatic testing.

    Contact Tracing Testing - for students who have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 while at school. For the purposes of contact tracing, testing would be required only for students who are not fully vaccinated, as vaccinated students do not have to quarantine.

    • Qualifying for a modified quarantine, a student can remain in their regular classroom at school for learning after they have been exposed to a positive individual at school. Modified Quarantine requirements are updated regularly on the SDCOE K12 Decision Tree

    • If a student is not tested at school, they must be tested for COVID-19 using either a lab-based or rapid molecular PCR test between day three (3) from exposure and day five (5) from exposure, and again between three (3) and five (5) days after the initial test OR remain at home for the duration of the quarantine.

    Symptomatic Testing - for students who develop symptoms at school, regardless of vaccination status, they may be tested before they go home so that they can return to school as quickly as possible (symptomatic testing may be available on-site, or at the District Office free of charge). 

    Registration: You only need to register your child once for testing at the link below, and with your consent, your child can participate in our COVID testing program if they are ever identified as a close contact, are symptomatic, or if they were home sick and are ready to return to school after their symptoms have improved.
