Weekly COVID-19 Update
Cumulative Case count: (12)
Placer County’s COVID-19 case count is starting to trend upward again, particularly in south Placer County. As you can see in our case count, we have had some new cases in the past few weeks, and the County Public Health Doctor has told us to expect that we will have more cases in the upcoming months ahead. We need to continue to be diligent - here is our weekly reminder about our basic COVID-19 protocols regarding student illness - a link to our current student illness protocols is available here.
Student masks: As a school, since the pandemic started we’ve been giving kids masks to wear in the classroom when they’ve forgotten to bring their masks. As this year has progressed, I’ve noticed more and more students not coming to school with a mask - in the last week, we gave out over 1000 masks to students. Favor: Please help make sure that your child is remembering to bring their mask to school.

Placer County Office of Education Substitute Teaching Pool looking for more subs
Our school, along with almost all of the school districts within Placer County, are a part of the Placer County Office of Education’s Substitute Teacher Consortium. PCOE is looking for more substitute teachers for the pool. Given all of the recent impacts related to COVID-19, the number of people available to substitute has gone down substantially, while the demand for substitutes has gone up. Contextually, there’s normally over 1000 substitute teachers available in the pool; right now, the number is under 200. As a member of the PCOE Consortium, we traditionally get our substitute teachers from this pool, thus it’s very much in our interests for more people to get certified as substitute teachers. For more information on how to become a substitute teacher within Placer County, please check out this website: https://www.placercoe.org/Pages/PCOE/Departments/Human-Resources/Substitute-Teacher-Information.aspx.
