Parent Communication Guide

COVID-19 Notification & Communication

Paradise Unified School District is committed to continue communication throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As the 2021 New Year begins, individual students, families or classrooms may be requested to quarantine at home as a precaution to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. Families who have students attending hybrid in-person instruction should be aware of the following information.
  • Students will be sent to the Health Office if they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms. Please keep
    sick children home.
  • The School Office staff may communicate with families who have a symptomatic student
    at school.
  • Parents/Guardians should consider a plan in the event your child is required to go home
    due to symptoms.
  • Teachers will maintain a consistent seating chart to assist with contact tracing should it
    be necessary.
  • PUSD will follow the CDPH, BCPH and CalOSHA recommendations for quarantine
    instructions or classroom/campus closures.
  • Families will be notified by the school only if there is a CONFIRMED COVID-19 in your
    child's classroom.
  • PUSD will only report positive COVID-19 cases that have been confirmed with BCPH.
  • Students in "direct contact" (within six-feet of a confirmed COVID-19 person for over 15
    minutes) will be contacted and required to quarantine.
  • Dashboard information regarding confirmed COVID-19 cases for the State, County and
    PUSD can be found through the links below.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel virus that has been spreading worldwide. Community-acquired cases have now been confirmed in California. We are gaining more understanding of COVID-19’s epidemiology, clinical course, immunogenicity, and other factors as time progresses, and the situation is changing daily. CDPH is in the process of monitoring COVID-19, conducting testing with local and federal partners, and providing guidance and resources to prevent, detect and respond to the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in California.
