General Notification of Non-Close Contacts

DATE:  3-4-2022

Dear Families and Staff,

Beginning on Mar. 7, 2022, the San Diego Unified School District will no longer be sending out general notification letters to staff and students each time there is a positive case on a school campus or other district site.  To identify positive cases on campus, please consult the district COVID-19 Dashboard for cases at sites.  

If, in the course of a positive case investigation, students or staff are identified as a “close contact” with an individual, those students or staff will be notified separately. “Close contact” is defined as being closer than 6  feet for 15 minutes or longer with this individual (with or without a mask), within 48 hours prior to that person feeling sick or testing positive.


It remains a public health order of this County and State that anyone who is having COVID-19 symptoms not come to work and please seek out a COVID-19 test. It is very important that staff or students with symptoms not come onto school campuses and notify their school site or supervisor.  As guidelines change around contact tracing and COVID guidance, we will update this notification.  

COVID-19 Related Protocols:

Is your Student sick?

  1. If your child has symptoms or is complaining of not feeling well please keep them at home and follow this: COVID-19 K-12 e-Decision Tree
  2. Contact the school if your child will be absent for any reason. You may report the absence using this google form or you may also call our phone line at 619-605-3200 and press 1 for attendance to leave a message. Please be specific in your reason.

Has your student been in contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19?

  1. Please also use the COVID-19 K-12 e-Decision Tree to see if you need to quarantine your child. The e-Decision Tree has the new updated quarantine periods depending on your child’s situation.
  2. Please note the isolation for close contact exposure can be more than 10 days if the student continues to be exposed to someone who is within their contagious period - especially a parent or sibling.

Symptomatic Testing - SDUSD offers testing every day of the week. Check the District COVID Testing page for locations and hours.
