Good afternoon, San Marino Unified Families and Community,
We remain committed to staying in communication with you with any updates we can provide on the developments related to the novel coronavirus. We are continuing to work very closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and other county and state health and education officials to monitor the very latest. While there are no new cases or developments unique to our San Marino community or Los Angeles County at this time, we wanted to send an update reaffirming that we are continuing to stay informed and will continue to notify you should we receive any new information.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Update as of 2-3-2020
In its most
recent update today
, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said,
"In LA County, as in counties across the US, the threat to the general public for contracting coronavirus remains low."
LA County still has only one confirmed case of novel coronavirus.
Continued Steps for the San Marino Unified School District
We are still advising parents, as we always do,
please do not send your children to school if they may be sick
. Keeping your sick child home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of all of our students and staff. If children are sent to school sick, please note that they can be removed from class and school as deemed appropriate by our staff and nurses.
If you, your child, or family recently traveled to or from China, we also ask that you take extra precautions and seek a medical evaluation from your doctor before returning to school.
San Marino Unified will actively maintain its focus on our number one priority, which is the health and safety of our students and staff. We will continue to closely monitor this matter and will communicate with you all we can should we receive any updated information.
Accurate information, including announcements of new cases in LA County, will always be distributed by Public Health through official channels in the form of a press release and will also be available on the
Public Health website
and social media accounts @lapublichealth.
If we all continue to work together and follow these important guidelines, we can keep our students, staff, and community healthy. Please share this information with your family and caregivers. We truly appreciate your partnership in this and greatly appreciate your support for our students, staff, and community.
If you have any questions, please contact District Nurse Bob Judge or District Health Coordinator Joanne Javier at (626) 299-7000 x1385. We thank you for your cooperation and support.
