Covid Surge and Update to County/District Decision Tree

With the recent surge in positive Covid cases across the nation we would like to remind everyone of the following: 

  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. If your child has come into contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 please also use the 

COVID-19 K-12 e-Decision Tree to see if you need to quarantine your child.

  1. 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. 

  2. The e-Decision Tree has the new updated quarantine periods depending on your child’s situation.  

  3. Please note the date for close contact exposure can be up to 10 days ongoing from the date the person continues to be exposed to someone positive - especially at home. 

We have had a number of children who have been sent home from school with symptoms stating to staff that they did report to a family member they were not feeling well, but were sent to school anyway. We understand that symptomatic testing is taking much longer than usual due to this surge, but that should not be a reason to place numerous children and staff unnecessarily at risk. 

Please know you may add your child to our weekly Tuesday asymptomatic testing if you have not already done so:

  1. Complete the opt-in process to allow the testers to conduct weekly testing. 

  2. Register and consent in the Primary.Health Portal in order to be tested.

A Simple Way to Share COVID-19 Test Results

If your student has been tested for COVID-19 in order to return to school after an illness or close contact, please upload the test results on our Google Form. This allows all of our office staff to access the results and makes it quicker to confirm students are cleared to return to school.  Upload Here

Congratulations to Safety Patrol Major 

On December 18th our Safety Patrol attended the annual Safety Patrol Awards ceremony at Madison High School with the San Diego Police Department who sponsors the School Safety Patrol program.  After an extensive interview Hancock’s own Captain, Alana Mullinax, was promoted to Major.  There are only 13 Majors in the entire city for San Diego’s Safety Patrol.  We congratulate Alana and the entire Hancock Safety Patrol for their diligence and hard work they have demonstrated this past school year in keeping our street crossing and traffic in/out of school for arrival and dismissal safe.  

New Sessions of After School Programs Begin

At this time, we are still planning to have the following After School Programs start later this month. We will update in upcoming newsletters if the district changes policies allowing these programs.
