Santa Rosa Academy is committed to maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff while keeping our community informed on COVID-19 data in our school.
The data displayed on the dashboard below represents the number of confirmed active COVID-19 positive cases in quarantine, away from campus. Active COVID-19 positive cases in quarantine are defined as confirmed positive cases, where an individual staff member or student has received a positive test result and is quarantined away from campus, and that individual had been on campus 48 hours, or less, prior to the positive test or onset of symptoms.
Please note that the dashboard data is updated within 24 hours of a confirmed case. It is not updated on the weekends, non-school days, or holidays. Additionally, the “On Campus” counts for enrolled students physically present for in-person instruction. This does not include virtual, homeschool, or independent study students who are not physically present at a school site. These numbers are subject to change and may be updated as needed.

Communication in the Event of Positive Cases
If there is a positive case on campus, affected individuals will be contacted directly by the school Health Liaison, David Johnson, RN. Affected or exposed individuals will receive instructions for self-isolation or quarantine directions, information on testing options provided by the school, and/or symptoms to watch out for in the next few days, as well as Independent Study instructions for the duration of the quarantine. If Nurse Johnson does not contact you individually, your child has not been identified as a direct close contact in the tracing process. Families of students who are not affected will not receive a notification letter and no action will be required. Please note that the school will only communicate and provide data for test positive confirmed COVID-19 cases. Additionally, exposure may not necessarily mean a mandatory self-quarantine. Per CDPH K-12 guidance, quarantine and self-isolation are dependent upon the vaccination status of exposed individuals and/or known symptoms.
What can Families do to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 in Schools?
It is going to take a team approach to keep our students, staff, and families safe. In addition to the health and safety measures taken on our campus, we implore families to be proactive and reinforce the importance of handwashing, and universal masking/face coverings while indoors on our school facilities.
You can help us in these efforts by completing the required health checks each morning on ParentSquare. Here is last year’s video with instructions:
Please disregard the email cited in the video. If you would like to email our School Nurse about the health screening, she may be reached at email@example.com. Students should stay home if they have any illness symptoms. Students that present any illness symptoms while on campus will be sent to the nurse’s office for evaluation by Allie Coleman RN and, if needed, picked up by their parents. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is awaiting test results, please keep your child at home and notify the school immediately.
