PANDEMIC POLICIES

Last Updated: 3/14

What is Peregrine's illness policy?

Everyone who presents with cold or flu symptoms will be asked to stay home for 24 hours after the onset of symptoms. 

 

If symptoms are not due to COVID-19, a note from a doctor is required stating an alternate diagnosis for the symptoms (such as the flu or RSV), OR a negative COVID test, to be allowed back to school before the 10 day quarantine period ends. 

Positive Case:

 

All individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are required to report this to the school, by phone or by email at pandemic@peregrineschool.org, and self-isolate until they meet the requirements to discontinue isolation set by the CDPH.

Guidance on Isolation and Quarantine for COVID-19 Contact Tracing

Exposure:

Vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine after exposure but should continue to monitor symptoms for 14 days and get tested 3-5 days after the last point of exposure. 

COVID-19 Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People

 

Unvaccinated students and staff who are exposed to COVID-19 are required to follow CDPH guidance on quarantining before returning to school. 

 

All ECC students who are exposed to COVID-19 are required to self-quarantine for 5 days after the last point of exposure, with a negative COVID test, or 10 days without a COVID test per guidance from Yolo County

Elementary students who are exposed to COVID-19 will be required to follow the quarantine guidance outlined in the COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2021-22 School Year.

This guidance allows for K-12 students to continue attending school after exposure to COVID-19 in the case that both parties were masked during the time of exposure. Additionally, the exposed individual must be asymptomatic, continue to wear a mask while at school, be COVID tested twice weekly for 10 days, and continue to monitor symptoms. If both parties were not masked at the time of exposure, the exposed individual must quarantine for a period of 10-days, or for a period of 7-days if a negative test is collected after the 5th day.

What are Peregrine School's policies on travel and gatherings?

EFFECTIVE TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022:

FOR ELEMENTARY

Outdoor masking will be optional for elementary students and staff but we will continue to require masking when indoors until the end of the academic year (June 9, 2022). Please send your child to school with a mask lanyard, to make their transitions from outdoors to indoors as smooth as possible.

FOR ECC

We will continue indoor and outdoor masking for students 2 years and older until the end of the current academic year (June 15, 2022). All staff in our ECC programs will also continue masking indoors and outdoors. 

Who has to wear a mask at school?

We will no longer be requiring unvaccinated individuals to quarantine after out-of-state travel. We still strongly recommend that all individuals take a COVID test before returning to class if they do any traveling.

We will be offering students and staff COVID testing at both the South and West campuses.

The tests are available to all students over the age of two who can administer the test themselves. We will walk the students through the process and you can see a video example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU_G-D_sL3I

Adults will be required to wear masks when indoors on campus. Specifics about the pick up process will be communicated before March 29.
