COVID-19 Questions and Information:

  • There are new requirements for testing after exposure. Negative test results for students after exposure are now tracked by CVESD and must be reported by parent/guardian at this link: https://forms.office.com/r/uzEF13QrRE.
  • To report a positive case to us in the office, please email lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org
  • If your child is experiencing any symptoms, please keep them at home and notify the school office at (619) 420-3940.
  • If you have someone who is known positive in your household, please also keep your child home and notify the office
  • If you have a COVID Positive Case in your home and need guidance on isolation/quarantine, please email covtest4@cvesd.org
  • If your K-12 student is exposed to a positive case indoors for 15+ minutes, your child will need to be tested for COVID-19 3, 4 or 5 days AFTER the last date of exposure to the positive individual to continue to come to school. If you do not want to test your child after the exposure, they must remain home for 10 days and can return to campus day 11. We have five testing sites on our campuses offering both PCR and antigen testing, Monday–Friday from 7 am to 6 pm.
  • The district’s website, www.cvesd.org, is updated daily to reflect COVID testing hours and locations.
  • Masks continue to be required on campus, for adults and students.  All adults (including families and staff) must be masked at all times.

Testing Frequency | Genesis HealthCare

We are excited to share a new testing program that will be part of keeping our schools the safest in the state of CA. You received an email from COVID Clinic on Friday, 1/21/22. This is not spam. This is a permission slip to sign up your child for weekly testing beginning the week of February 7th in your student’s classroom by licensed health care professionals. This test will allow us to ensure that our students, staff, and community are safe and healthy. Please provide consent as soon as you receive it to assist us in keeping our schools open. You will be asked for your student’s ID number; this is the 6-digit number they use to log in to all district programs. (if you did not receive the email or need assistance, please contact k12@covidclinic.org)

Updated Vaccination Information

Children 5 and up can be vaccinated against Covid-19. Please send completed (two doses of Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccination card copies to lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org to update school vaccination records. Children are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second Pfizer dose. Children who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after exposure to a positive case IF we have vaccination records on file. Click here for information about where to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
