COVID-19 Information and Resources
Updated April 8, 2021
WHAT'S NEW: Monterey County has entered the orange tier and we have adjusted our testing protocols.
We look forward to welcoming all grades back to campus for in-person instruction on April 12.
Santa Catalina School offers on-campus COVID-19 testing every other week. The testing is provided by OneHealth LLC, and parents will find the updated flyer for each event on our COVID-19 testing information website. Our expectations for the frequency of testing varies by grade level, as described below.
Grades 9–12: Santa Catalina School requires COVID-19 testing for students in Grades 9-12 attending on-campus instruction. Students unable to take the testing offered by the school will need to provide proof of a negative PCR test to the Health Center (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Kindergarten–Grade 8: While testing for students in Kindergarten–Grade 8 will not be required at this time, we strongly encourage parents to consider the benefits of regular, asymptomatic testing as a way to help lower the spread of COVID-19.
