Happy Friday, Ukiah Unified! Social distancing guidance recently changed in Mendocino County to allow a minimum of 3 feet between students in the classroom. This change enables us to bring our students at Eagle Peak Middle School, Pomolita Middle School, and Calpella Elementary School back to campus four days a week, beginning on April 19th, 2021. There would be no more A or B days for students in these schools. Students involved in distance learning will continue with distance learning. Several other elementary schools are pursuing opening to four days per week in-person as well, but may only have the capacity to open certain grade levels due to the distancing requirements. Our goal is to get students back on campus in person as much as possible, even though we only have 7 weeks of school remaining. Please reach out to your school site with questions.
COVID-19 Vaccinations for Students 16–18 The Mendocino County Public Health Vaccine Team is working to vaccinate 16–18 year olds and their families in Mendocino County. Click here to complete a short survey about your interest in a COVID-19 vaccination for those 16–18 years old in your household. The results of this survey will determine the number of vaccines needed and possible locations for vaccine clinics throughout our county.
COVID-19 Testing We are excited to continue free COVID-19 testing for any Ukiah Unified student. COVID-19 testing is not mandatory, but students are highly encouraged to participate! If you have not registered yet, please do so here. https://www.primarybio.com/a/uusd You will need to know the Student ID number for each child to sign up. We administer 15-minute rapid antigen tests. Students swab their own noses under guidance from District staff.
If you need assistance, please first reach out to your child’s school and then call our District Hotline at 707-472-5003. Thank you very much for everything you do to support our students!
