    Update from the Superintendent - October 18th

    Dear SVUSD Families,

    We had a successful Professional Development day at all of our school sites last Friday!  Sites focused on student data and assessments, PBIS reinforcements, Social Emotional Learning curriculum, and also discussed implementation of our Cultural Responsiveness Committee initiatives. It was a great opportunity for our staff to be in person together and deepen their practice, and collaborate on plans for upcoming report cards and assessments. It's beginning to feel closer to normal!

    We continue to monitor our COVID testing results and continue with our required protocols.  We update our COVID Dashboard weekly on the SVUSD website.  

    Here is the most recent letter from the Santa Cruz County Superintendents.

    Update from the Superintendent - October 1st

    Welcome to the month of October!

    As I imagine you have heard, we have received a few updates this week regarding COVID regulations. The indoor mask mandate for Santa Cruz County was lifted, however this is still a requirement for schools in all indoor settings. Today, Governor Newsom made an announcement regarding the requirement of vaccinations for students 12 and over who are not yet vaccinated, as well as all staff being required to be vaccinated as a condition of employment. As more information is released on this subject, we will provide the details to our community.  Please read this week’s letter from the County Superintendents.

    We have received some questions regarding our COVID dashboard.  Based on these questions and suggestions, we have updated the dashboard  to include the antigen testing and self-reporting data through September 5, and we have added a second dashboard for our PCR testing.  The PCR testing information is primarily through Inspire Diagnostics, but also includes confirmed positive tests provided to us by families. We are updating that dashboard weekly, and you will find the link on the front page of the district website.

    We are experiencing some confirmed positive cases at our schools, and also encouraging eligible students to obtain the vaccine. When the vaccine for students 5 through 11 years old is approved, it is our intention to host a vaccination clinic at one of the school sites. We will share more information on this when it is available.

    In addition to all things COVID, we are excited to see students participating in school and in extracurricular events. We are pleased to be able to continue providing on-site testing, monitoring safety protocols, and having students and staff participate in various activities safely.

    I have been able to get out to a variety of district events and am so pleased to see students excited and joyful to be back participating in school activities.

    Enjoy your weekend,

    Tanya Krause, Superintendent
