LCUSD Issues Updated COVID Safety Plan

Superintendent Wendy Sinnette recently briefed the La Cañada Unified School District board on an updated COVID-19 safety plan for the school system, and the subject of testing for the virus figured prominently in the presentation.
“We’ve had a wild ride for the last three years, and things are finally returning to normal,” Sinnette said at a meeting on March 7.
“The next step will be to suspend all of the volunteer COVID testing for all of the parent volunteers and volunteers who come to campus, and that will take place beginning March 8,” Sinnette said.
Although testing is dropped for volunteers, other testing that is in place will still be required.
Any large group that is going on an overnight trip for which it filed for official permission needs to test, and families need to test before students come back from spring break or any other holiday break.
The district is keeping this testing in place because its leaders see a lot of positive cases when there are field trips and breaks in the semester, Sinnette added.
“But our plan is that we anticipate sunsetting the testing requirements for the upcoming ’23-24 school year,” she said.
Students’ parents can view the COVID safety plan by visiting lcusd.net, clicking on the COVID-19 tab near the top of the page and selecting School Reopening and Safety Plan.
