LVUSD COVID 19 Dashboard
The Las Virgenes Unified School District and all of our schools are committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff. The data in the chart below represents the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases among LVUSD students and staff on our campuses (in-person instruction only). This data will be updated regularly and as cases are confirmed. In the event of a positive case, school communities are notified directly by their principals or school staff. These are total cases, the vast majority of which come from community spread, NOT on-campus transmission.
Communication Process in the Event of Confirmed COVID-19 Cases
In the event of a positive case, that results in an on-campus exposure, school communities are notified directly by their principals or school staff. The class and the larger school community will receive notification of a confirmed COVID-19, that results in an on-campus exposure, case via email. Confirmed COVID-19 cases will be reported on the LVUSD COVID-19 Dashboard. LVUSD schools and staff will maintain confidentiality and protect student privacy, following all FERPA protocols as required by law.
What Families Can Do to Limit the Spread
Get vaccinated! Vaccinated students (without symptoms) do not need to quarantine. The CA Department of Public Health has ordered that unvaccinated students who are a close contact must quarantine for up to 10 days. It is going to take a concerted effort by everyone to keep our students, staff, and families safe. In addition to health and safety measures taken on our campuses, we encourage families to be proactive and to reinforce the importance of hand-washing, physical distancing and face coverings to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Also, if a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19, or is awaiting test results, keep your child at home and notify your school. If your child has any symptoms (fever, chills, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, runny nose, or shortness of breath) associated with the Coronavirus, make sure they stay home and get tested.
Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement of other symptoms. Finally, keep children home when they are sick. Schools will work with students and families to maintain confidentiality and to help continue your student’s education.
