Will YVCS offer a fully remote option for the 2021-2022 school year?

WILL YVCS OFFER A FULLY REMOTE OPTION FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR?

No. However, we will have a practical and user-friendly education plan for those students who are out of school for an extended period due to Covid. This plan will closely resemble conventional plans from previous years for extended sickness or other reasons.

Will families be required to continue to daily self check their child(ren) for symptoms?

WILL FAMILIES BE REQUIRED TO CONTINUE TO DAILY SELF CHECK THEIR CHILD(REN) FOR SYMPTOMS?

Yes. But at this time, YVCS will not require the daily reporting form that was in place last year. Even so, let’s continue to be strict in keeping sick students home -- the single most important part of our plan. We need everyone’s cooperation! 

In place of the daily reporting form, we will continue to track all absences due to illness, so please report any illness/symptoms to admin@yvcschool.org

Are masks optional for the 2021-2022 school year?

ARE MASKS OPTIONAL FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR?

Yes, that is the plan. But we will be following whatever the county guidelines mandate.
*UPDATE * CA K-12 Education Health Plan released on 08/02/21 and has adjusted this. YVCS plans to adopt last year's masking plan until it is directed and safe to relax the mask mandate for Indoor as well as Outdoor. 

Will YVCS contact trace during the 2021-2022 school year?

WILL YVCS CONTACT TRACE DURING THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR?

Upon notification of a positive Covid case, families of students in the same classroom/cohort will be made aware of any positive cases in their child’s classroom(s) and can make determinations for their own child. If a family decides to voluntarily quarantine their child, the quarantine cannot exceed 14 days.

We will not uniquely contact trace every student who was within 6’ or 3’ of a positive case during the day. Please do not ask our staff or teachers for this information. Rather we will generally contact trace with these notifications outlined in the bullet point above.  

My child was tested for COVID-19. Can he/she come to school while waiting for the results if he/she doesn't have any symptoms?

MY CHILD WAS TESTED FOR COVID-19. CAN HE/SHE COME TO SCHOOL WHILE WAITING FOR THE RESULTS IF HE/SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS?

No. Students and staff awaiting test results must self-quarantine at home and are not allowed at school, even if asymptomatic.

What if my student has seasonal allergies?

WHAT IF MY STUDENT HAS SEASONAL ALLERGIES?

There is some overlap between common seasonal allergy symptoms and some of the symptoms that have been reported by people with COVID-19 such as headache, sneezing or cough. It is important to take into account whether an individual’s symptoms are compatible with their usual symptoms and timing for allergy in that person.

What if my child is sick? How soon can he/she return to school?

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SICK? HOW SOON CAN HE/SHE RETURN TO SCHOOL?

Students with a fever (a temperature that meets or exceeds 100.4°F is considered a fever), loss of taste/smell, sore throat, and/or body aches will require clearance from a medical provider before returning to school.  

Students with a cough, runny nose, vomiting, and/or diarrhea will require 24 hours of no symptoms before returning. This is true for all students, regardless of vaccination status.

Siblings without symptoms may come to school.

What if my child or someone in my household has an exposure to someone who has tested positive for Covid?

WHAT IF MY CHILD OR SOMEONE IN MY HOUSEHOLD HAS AN EXPOSURE TO SOMEONE WHO HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID?

If anyone in the student’s household tests positive for Covid, the student must quarantine for 14 days.  

• For an exposure outside of the student’s household, assuming your child does not have any symptoms, we are largely leaving it up to the home -- he/she may return to school. We simply ask that you closely monitor your child for symptoms...and all children in the household stay home if symptoms develop. You are also welcome to voluntarily quarantine your asymptomatic child in these circumstances for any period of time up to 14 days.

What if my child tests positive?

WHAT IF MY CHILD TESTS POSITIVE?

Please report all positive (and negative) test results to admin@ yvcschool.org 

Upon reporting the positive test to the staff, you will receive specific instructions for your child, which may include isolation of your child and quarantine of others in your household.   

While your child or anyone in your household waits for test results, please stay home.
Your child will be able to continue with their YVCS education during quarantine, although significantly different and more simplified than the plan for the 2020-2021 school year.

Will YVCS require social distancing in the 2021-2022 school year?

WILL YVCS REQUIRE SOCIAL DISTANCING IN THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR?

In general, this will not be a consistent practice, but may implement it if needed.

What should I expect regarding lunch?

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT REGARDING LUNCH?

For the most part, we will continue with hot lunch program and return to our designated lunch areas on campus.

What about cleaning and hygiene protocols?

WHAT ABOUT CLEANING AND HYGIENE PROTOCOLS?

We will continue with daily cleanings using approved and effective products.  

We also will continue to maintain our hand sanitizing stations throughout the campus and encourage regular handwashing. Good hygiene practices will be a regular topic with our students.
