Wiseburn COVID-19 Dashboard
Last Updated: May 10, 2021
The Wiseburn Unified School District and its schools are committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on its campuses and work locations, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for its students and staff. The data below represents the number of confirmed active COVID-19 cases among District students and staff on its campuses (in-person instruction only). This data will be updated regularly and as cases are confirmed.
*Current positive cases reported within the last 14 days. Data for a positive case will be removed when the individual is cleared to return to the campus. Staff members who only work remotely and have not been on District property are not included in these counts.
Communication Process in the Event of Positive Cases
In the event there is a positive case, affected individuals will be contacted directly by their school or District staff with self-isolation directions and other important information. Families of students who are not affected will not receive a notification letter and no action will be required; however, the data reflecting confirmed cases will be updated on this page. Please note that the District will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.
If your, your student, or another member of your household is symptomatic, is exposed to, or has tested positive for COVID-19, you must keep your student at home and contact via email and phone your specific school site principal as well as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, Nisha Dugal (email@example.com, 310-725-2101).
Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement of other symptoms.
We will treat information regarding the identity of persons with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 as confidential to the extent practicable and will comply with applicable laws regarding the handling of such information.
Plan to Address Positive COVID-19 Cases or Community Surges
Per CDPH guidance, when a student, teacher, or staff member, or a member of the household, tests positive for COVID-19 and has exposed others at the school, WUSD will implement the following steps:
- In consultation with the local public health officials, the Superintendent and the Board of Education may consider whether school closure is warranted, and determine the length of time for the closure, based on the risk-level within the specific community.
- Per standard guidance for isolation at home after close contact, the classroom or office where the COVID-19-positive individual was based will typically need to close temporarily as students or staff isolate.
- Additional contacts at school, outside of the classroom/s, should also isolate at home.
- Additional areas of the school visited by the COVID-19-positive individual may also need to be closed temporarily for cleaning and disinfection.
- During the isolate at home period the school site will provide a plan for continuity of education, social services and meal program as needed, and establish alternate mechanisms to support student in quarantine.
