1 This number may fluctuate with new student enrollments, student disenrollments, and staff changes. 2 Information updated as cases are confirmed. Total cases within a 14 day period - not necessarily epidemiologically linked. 3 Cumulative counts for the 2021-22 school year. 4 Student cases based on only those participating in TK-12 on-campus instructional cohorts.
 
COVID-19 Outbreak Criteria for TK-12 schools: At least three (3) laboratory-confirmed cases within a 14 day period in a group with members who are epidemiologically linked, do not share a household, and are not a close contact of each other outside of the campus. If one or more sites within LCUSD identifies a COVID-19 outbreak, the district will immediately notify LADPH, and will determine if a site(s) must be temporarily closed to minimize potential exposure to others.
 
Communications Process For Positive Cases
In the event there is a positive case, affected individuals will be contacted directly by their school or district staff and they will receive notification that may include self-isolation directions and other important information. Families of students who are not affected will not receive a notification letter and no action will be required. Please note that LCUSD will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.
 
COVID-19 Reporting Instructions for Families
If your child is suspected of having COVID-19, is awaiting test results, or tests positive for COVID-19, please keep your child at home and notify the School Office.

If anyone in your household is suspected of having COVID-19, is awaiting test results, or tests positive for COVID-19, please keep your child at home and notify the School Office.
 
What Families Can Do to Limit the Spread
It is going to take a concerted effort to keep our students, staff and families safe. In addition to health and safety measures taken on our campus, 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, please keep your child at home and notify your school. If your child has any symptoms associated with the coronavirus, make sure they stay home and get tested if necessary.

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.
