Help Chyna Out! Follow these Rules
I know we are all sick of this, but we are experiencing another increase in COVID cases. Please help out Ms. Chyna by following these rules (which are still required by the county and state):
COVID Symptoms Include: Fever/chills, Cough, Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle/body aches, Headache, New loss of taste/smell, Sore throat, Congestion/runny nose, Nausea/vomiting, Diarrhea
Students and staff who develop symptoms must isolate. They may discontinue isolation when conditions 1, 2, and ONE of the options for condition 3 have ALL been met:
Condition 1: At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; AND
Condition 2: Other symptoms improve; AND
Condition 3a - Testing Negative: Negative COVID test(s) 1 PCR test OR 2 Antigen Tests with at least 24-48 hours in between tests. (Antigen recommended for those who had COVID in the last 90 days.) Testing must be performed/observed by a healthcare provider, laboratory, or a CLIA certified program. Negative results from home tests do not count.
Condition 3b - Doctor's Note: A healthcare provider has provided documentation that the symptoms are typical of their underlying chronic condition (e.g., allergies or asthma) OR a healthcare provider has confirmed an alternative named diagnosis. Healthcare providers may use the Return to School Form.
Condition 3c - Ten Days Have Passed: Isolation may end if at least 10 days have passed since symptom onset and conditions 1 and 2 have been met.
If COVID Positive: Rules for an a person with a positive COVID test (lab or home) are similar. To discontinue isolation they must meet conditions 1, 2, AND 3a OR 3c. If meeting 3a, the test must be done on or after day 5, and one lab antigen test (instead of two) is acceptable. (Negative results from home tests are still not acceptable.)
Day 0 is the date of the positive test if asymptomatic or the date of symptom onset if symptomatic. If a COVID-positive person begins asymptomatic and then develops symptoms, they must start the timeline over with the first day of symptoms being day zero.
Anyone returning from isolation before day 10 is asked to please wear a well-fitting mask around others until after day 10.

Parents' Club Info
The Pacific School Foundation needs help for next school year, 2022-2023!
Join a completely parent volunteer group that helps support the school with fundraising and FUN-raising community events! We meet via Zoom typically the 2nd Tuesday of each month. These meetings are held with Principal Gross and several parents and it’s where we make decisions that help support the school.
The Pacific School Foundation is a nonprofit run by volunteer parents of current students at Pacific Elementary. All funds raised are to support our unique and special programs including the LifeLab program, Library program, Visual, Music and Theater Arts as well as supporting teachers with teacher grants. The fundraising needed for each student next year is approximately $268, which is about $30 per month per student or approximately $1 a day. Without fundraising, the school would be forced to cut back these special programs!
You can set up a monthly donation through our donation link: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=G2Y47EU7TKQR6&source=url
Join us at our monthly meetings. They are generally the 2nd Tuesday of the month between August through May via Zoom. Our First Meeting is Tuesday August 16th at 5:30pm. Join parents and Mr. Gross for the latest info act what’s happening at the school. Look at the school website for the link.
