OUSD schools are closed to in-person instruction for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year due to the 'shelter in place' order.
The health and safety of all students, staff and school communities is our top priority. To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including the coronavirus and flu, follow these important tips:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
- Get vaccinated every year
If you are feeling sick
If students or family members are having a medical emergency (like extreme difficulty breathing), they should call 911 or go to the Emergency Room. Otherwise, please see information below about how families can access needed healthcare.
If students or families have urgent healthcare needs, families should call their medical provider, even if they have not seen their medical provider for a long time, to get advice or schedule an appointment. Right now, testing for the coronavirus is still limited. Your medical provider can advise about whether this is recommended or needed.
If families do not already have a medical provider, La Clínica de La Raza can register new patients over the phone and then conduct a phone consultation to assess if the patient should come in for a visit or stay home. We are reaching out to other community clinics to see if they will be accepting new patients at this time.
