PHYSICAL DISTANCING IN CLASSROOMS AND ON CAMPUSES


  • ACPHD’s guidance calls for maintaining three feet of distance between and among students.

  • In cases where physical distancing needs to be relaxed, however, face coverings and cohort stability take on even greater importance.

  • It is also critical when students are entering, exiting, or moving around the school campus.


FACE COVERING


  • ACPHD’s health orders mandate that all school employees and all students wear a cloth or disposable mask at all times while at school - including when they are outside.

  • Students need to wear face-covering over the mouth and nose.

  • Students need to bring an additional mask to school.


HEALTH SCREEN FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS


  • In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 among students and staff, all families and employees will be required to self-screen prior to arriving at school

  • Families will also need to fill out a form that asks about the child’s potential exposure to people with COVID-19 and potential symptoms. Students with temperatures of 100 degrees or higher or with symptoms of COVID-19, should stay home, notify the school, and seek immediate consultation with health care providers.

  • Staff will also visually screen for symptoms and symptomatic students will have their temperatures taken.

  • If someone in your household has come in close contact with an individual who is suspected of having COVID-19 or has a confirmed case of COVID-19, keeps your child home. Call the school and let us know, as we track this information for Public Health.

  • If the parent or any of their children are experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 or have come in close contact with an individual who is suspected of having COVID-19 or has a confirmed case of COVID-19, they will be sent home, and not permitted to enter the school before satisfying the School's requirements for returning, which will be based on then-current guidelines of state and local public health officials


COMMUNICATION


  • If we are notified that a YYLC staff member, parent, or child has tested positive for COVID-19 we will notify those who were in contact with that person immediately. We will take appropriate action within our building. A decision will be made regarding a classroom or building closure to allow for disinfection, based on the reporting as to time, exposure to others, etc.

  • We will Contact AUSD and Alameda County Public Health Department and let them know, email safelearning@acgov.org or call 510-268-2101


TUITION


  • No refund credit will be issued for COVID-related absence or Yu Ying class closures due to COVID.


STUDENTS ILLNESS AND RETURN


  • Any student exhibiting one or more symptoms of COVID-19 in school will need to be picked up and taken home immediately.

  • A staff member will take your child from the classroom to an isolated place, where they will be supervised until picked up. Students - and their siblings - must be picked up within 30 minutes by you or your identified emergency contact.

  • Students who test positive for COVID-19 must stay home, in isolation, for 10 days. Their entire cohort - or small group - has to quarantine for 14 days. Staff will conduct a case investigation, identify classmates or staff who had close contact with the student, and also disinfect the classroom. The class will continue in distance learning until the quarantine period is over.

  • For students who test positive for COVID-19, the student may return to the center after at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and show no symptoms for at least 2 consecutive days without taking any medicines, and a current covid test result.

  • Students who display one symptom and have had exposure to someone with COVID-19 will need to remain in isolation until they have been tested or a medical evaluator has sent a letter ruling out COVID-19. The student’s cohort will also have to go into quarantine until COVID-19 has been ruled out. The ill student can return to school if s/he is feeling better, has been fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of medicine) and a medical evaluator provides a letter saying the symptoms were not due to COVID-19

  • Students with close contact with a positive case must quarantine for 14 days. We will recommend that your child be tested 4 to 10 days after close contact and that you send the test results to the school. If the test comes back negative, the student still must stay in quarantine for the full 14 days, due to the chance of being infectious or developing symptoms.
