Communication Plan

Saddleback Valley Unified School District notifies families and the school community of any COVID-19 positive case. The COVID-19 Positive Notification document outlines the different notifications sent home to families. 

Suspected Cases

If a student or staff member is sent home with two or more COVID-19 symptoms, they may return to school when one of these conditions is completed:

  • A doctor approves a return to school
  • A negative COVID-19 test
  • After completing quarantine

Confirmed Negative Case

If the case is determined to be negative, no further community notification occurs. 

Confirmed Positive Case

When the school or District receives information regarding an employee or student testing positive for COVID-19 the Saddleback Valley Unified School District Safety staff will notify impacted families with additional information based upon consultation with the Orange County Health Care Agency.

Virtual Quarantine Instruction

Elementary students who need to quarantine due to a positive test, close contact or symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be provided 5 hours a week of instruction via zoom with a Virtual Quarantine Instructor.  Students will also continue their asynchronous work with their current teacher. 

Instruction will begin the day after the school is notified that the student will need to quarantine and will continue for the required amount of time depending on each student’s situation (typically 10-14 days).  Please let your school know if your student needs to quarantine due to a positive test, close contact with another individual who has tested positive or symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
