COVID-19 Information and Resources

Updated October 23, 2023

School protocols

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updated guidance for all K-12 schools in the state. Our intention is to promote a safe, healthy, and rich in-person learning environment for all of our students and staff. In accordance with the updated state guidance, and in coordination with Monterey County health officials, Santa Catalina School has implemented the following protocols.

Visitors to campus

Santa Catalina is limiting visitors to campus until further notice. Parents are permitted on campus for routine visits to divisional offices, in-person appointments, attendance at performances or sports contests, or the Health Center. Parents who are pre-registered for on-campus COVID-19 testing are permitted to enter campus. Any non-routine requests to visit campus should be directed to your child’s division office. No other visitors will be permitted access to campus unless they have an appointment.

Community expectations

We urge everyone in our community to take steps to protect good health. In order to mitigate the risk of infection and the spread of COVID-19, we ask you to incorporate these practices:

  • Get the COVID-19 vaccine, if eligible
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or approved hand sanitizers
  • Continue to follow public health orders and minimize exposure

School contacts

To report COVID-19 exposure or a suspected or confirmed case in your household, please notify your division head.
