Good Evening Barron Park Families:
You should have all received an email update from the district Superintendent regarding Coronavirus. We've been asked to also send the same message to ensure that all of our families receive the message.
According to the Center for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health, there is no elevated risk to our students and staff. They have asked us to provide links to their pages for people desiring additional information and guidance. You can go directly to their page here.
Additionally, PAUSD has created our own Frequently Asked Question page for parents. The page is evolving as new questions arise. We are making every effort to maintain a proactive, sensitive, and responsive relationship with our students, staff, and parents. You can access the PAUSD FAQ page here.
Please refer to the link below for any updates that are made regarding the Coronavirus situation. The link below will be updated with any new information related to the school district (English, Spanish, Mandarin).
Please take a moment to read this update on the Coronavirus from PAUSD Superintendent Dr. Don Austin. https://www.pausd.org/
Earlier today District officials received a report that a parent of two PAUSD students may have been exposed to COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, the district immediately took action and the two students were sent home and will be excluded from attending school until we receive more information. One child is a Paly student and the other attends JLS.
It is probable that additional reports will be received by the County Health Department and other entities during this time. PAUSD has formed a core team designated to assess and provide information on updates as received.
As mentioned yesterday, we are continuing to follow the guidance of the California Department of Public Health and the CDC.
We recognize that the unknown can be concerning and will continue to provide regular updates as we have them.
Don Austin, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
