This page has been established to post information to support families with information and resources during our school closure. 

In addition to school actions, we expect you will follow the guidelines from the San Diego County of Public Health to prepare your family and your household for the pandemic. The health office recommends you:

  • Store a two-week supply of food, beverages, and water, including food for family pets. Ensure an adequate supply of prescribed and routine medications are on hand.

  • Plan ways to care for those who are at greater risk for serious complications and who will take care of sick family members.

  • If you have family members with increased risk of getting seriously sick, check with your medical providers about symptoms and treatment. 

  • Create an emergency contact list of family and friends, teachers and employers.

  • Have a plan in case your school, childcare, or employer closes temporarily.

  • Talk with your children, family, and friends about what to do if an outbreak occurs and what each person would need.

In addition, the CDC recommends your household plan of action includes: 

  • Talk with the people who need to be included in your plan. Meet with household members, other relatives, and friends to discuss what to do if a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in your community and what the needs of each person will be.

  • Plan ways to care for those who might be at greater risk for serious complications. There is limited information about who may be at risk for severe complications from COVID-19 illness. It is possible that older adults and persons who have underlying chronic medical conditions may be at risk for more serious complications.

  • Get to know your neighbors. Talk with your neighbors about emergency planning. If your neighborhood has a website or social media page, consider joining it to maintain access to neighbors, information, and resources.

  • Identify aid organizations in your community. Create a list of local organizations that you and your household can contact in the event you need access to information, health care services, support, and resources. Consider including organizations that provide mental health or counseling services, food, and other supplies.

  • Create an emergency contact list. Ensure your household has a current list of emergency contacts for family, friends, neighbors, carpool drivers, health care providers, teachers, employers, the local public health department, and other community resources.
The following is a summary of some of the internet resources available to families during distance learning. We also have a limited number of hotspots available to support families as they transition to these services. Call the school to request hotspot access.
