COVID-19 Updates

 

OFFICIAL GUIDANCE

As of 9/25/2020, from the LADPH:  “Los Angeles County has met the metric thresholds for Tier 2 but must continue to meet these metric thresholds for two consecutive weeks before moving into the higher tier. We must continue implementing infectious control measures to help slow community transmission so we can open up more business sectors and schools in the county.

Recent Update from Head of School

 

With LA County on the watchlist, we remain under orders to remain closed to campus instruction until we are 14 days off the watchlist based on case rate, hospitalization rate, and other factors.

On the subject of waivers, we have received notification through the LADPH and PPHD that due to the most current data, they will not be approving any waivers for schools for the time being.   As of August 5, 2020, PPDH released this statement:

“The City of Pasadena Department of Public Health will adhere to new guidance from the California Department of Public Health, which recommends that Counties with case rates of COVID-19 at or above 200 cases per 100,000 residents do not extend waivers for the reopening of classroom instruction for students in grades TK- 6.”

We continue to monitor developments on a daily basis as they pertain to the reopening of schools and the latest data that affects our county and state and will update our families as to any changes or new information.
