COVID-19 Information and Resources

Updated September 14, 2021

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 and healthy 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 will implement the following protocols for the 2021-2022 school year to provide a safe environment for all students and employees.

Register for on-campus COVID-19 testing

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. All parents are required to wear face coverings as described above. 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.

In order to enter campus, parents and visitors will need to complete a health attestation form. Use the appropriate link below to complete the form.

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
  • Correctly wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or approved hand sanitizers
  • Continue to follow public health orders and minimize exposure


Santa Catalina discourages non-essential travel and any activities that increase your risk of exposure and illness. If you must travel, notify your child’s division head before you do so.

On June 15, the California Department of Public Health provided this flyer to outline travel recommendations and restrictions. There are different sections for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers.
