Dear Walgrove Community,
As you surely know, LAUSD has mandated that all LAUSD staff become COVID-19 vaccinated as of October 15, 2021, therefore, we, at Walgrove, now require that all COVID-19-vaccine-eligible visitors to campus be vaccinated, as well.
Therefore, as of Monday, October 18, 2021, all visitors 12 and over who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and/or Moderna) must now show both a negative PCR COVID test within the previous week and a vaccination card in order to enter and spend time on campus.
To escort your child to class for a hot minute: Vax card and neg test within the last week.
To volunteer in myriad ways for longer than a hot minute: Vax card, neg test within the last week, and registered as a volunteer:
Thank you for your community spirit. Please consider the following data:

On Saturday, September 25, approximately 30 volunteers from UCLA and almost 10 parents, staff and community members came to support Walgrove by working in the Wildlands, Edible Garden, auditorium and Blue Lagoon.
They hauled, organized, weeded, harvested and set the stage for fall planting and for all things Walgrove.
Thank you, all, for making Walgrove more beautiful!

If you are asked to quarantine for 7 or more days because it was determined that you have been a close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 (unvaccinated and within 6 feet for longer than 15 minutes), please read and heed the following:
Quarantine at home and stay separated from others for the duration.
Get tested 3-7 days after your quarantine begins and also preferably within 72 hours of returning to work or school. (So, for a 7-day quarantine, get tested on Day 6.)
If you tested positive and are asymptomatic, your isolation period is similar to a close contact's quarantine period. You should test again within 48 hours to confirm it is a true positive, then isolate and wait for clearance from the Community Engagement Team to return to work or school. You will NOT test again for 90 days after your return because it takes that long (or longer) for the virus to become undetectable.
When the Community Engagement Team calls you, the phone may display "Unknown Caller." Please answer. If you miss their call(s), the Community Engagement Team's # is 213-725-5637.
UPDATE 09/01/2021: THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT TEAM WILL NO LONGER NEED TO CLEAR YOU. THE PRINCIPAL MAY CLEAR YOU FOR RETURN TO SCHOOL.
Contacts of close contacts are not considered to be close contacts of positive cases. Parents, siblings, teachers, friends and others should stay physically distanced from the close contact but do not need to also quarantine.
Here are more facts about what to do when there is a positive case at work or school:

You will use both the Parent Portal and the Daily Pass often, so please know a few things:
They are two different entities at two different internet addresses.
You will need your child's ID for both, and for the Parent Portal, you will need your unique PIN (each parent has a distinct PIN. Two-parent households have two PINs.)
If you do not already know them, can obtain your child's ID and Parent Portal PINs from your teacher.
