UPDATE: Message to FCUSD Community
November 17, 2020
Dear FCUSD Community,
The District has created a COVID-19 Dashboard to provide information on the number of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, and who have been on an FCUSD campus or worksite. This information is intended to provide communication and transparency to our community. At the same time, we will maintain privacy and confidentiality. Names, details, and specific identifiers will not be included in the Dashboard. Only cases verified with a lab-confirmed positive test will be included.
To view the FCUSD COVID-19 Dashboard, please visit: www.fcusd.org/COVID
Important Note: FCUSD does not wait to notify close contacts upon an initial report of a positive case. However, we do wait for official verification before listing the case on this Dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this Dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of notifications received and the actual number of verified cases.
**Some classes may be quarantined as a precautionary measure while waiting for official verification**
On the website, you will also be able to view our communication protocols for responding to a suspected or verified COVID-19 positive case. Highlights of these protocols include:
In the event of a positive or probable COVID-19 case in our schools, our COVID-19 Illness and Quarantine Guidelines will be followed:
- Any individual who tests positive will be contacted by the FCUSD health department and/or HR department to begin contact tracing.
- Anyone deemed "exposed" will be asked to quarantine for a 14-day period and monitor for symptoms. Any students in this situation will continue learning virtually.
- All staff and families of students attending the same school will be notified of a positive case.
- In the case of positive or probable COVID-19 itinerant staff members, all sites will be notified as well

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our entire FCUSD community is our highest priority as we continue to navigate the changing landscape and challenges created by the pandemic.
If you have specific questions regarding your student or school, please contact your school’s principal.
