South Bay Union School District Home

Superintendent's Message

Dear South Bay Families,
 
In an effort to be more efficient, South Bay will follow the California Department of Public Health's guidance on employing group tracing in our efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Group tracing is notifying parents of students who have shared a common indoor airspace with a person who was contagious with COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes in a 24-hour period.  
 
Students who have been identified by the school site should get tested for COVID-19 on the fifth day after their exposure, or sooner if the student starts to show symptoms. Testing site options include:
 
County of San Diego: Click here to find a testing site near you.
At this time, over-the-counter (at-home) tests may also be used. 
Additionally, the South Bay Union School District Office COVID-19 testing is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
 
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19, please ensure they isolate at home immediately and notify your child’s school.  
  
Students must continue to wear a mask indoors in the school and community per school, local, and state requirements. Follow school policies to protect against COVID-19. We will continue to provide you with regular updates as needed. 
 
José Espinoza
