COVID-19 Information and Resources
Updated March 15, 2022
What's New: As of March 13, 2022, Santa Catalina students, staff, and parents are longer obliged to wear masks indoors at school.
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 for the 2021-2022 school year.
Should I send my child to school?
If you believe your child may have COVID-19 or been in close contact with someone who has, answer the questions below to help determine whether it is safe for them to return to school.
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.
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
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.
