Weekly Flight Tips

This week, we encourage our students to study and prepare well for tests. Students should get a good night's sleep, make flashcards, have family members quiz them, study with friends, and study as they go rather than cramming. When studying, be sure to put away distractions, keep their work area clean, and maintain focus so that they can focus on the material and be efficient in their study efforts. Please support these efforts from home by encouraging students to use these tips and to do well on assessments this semester.

COVID Protocols Update

As of January 18, 2022, students will not need to complete Screener-19 or have their temperature checked as we return to our regular school drop off process. We are grateful for all of your cooperation as we implemented extra safety measures the past two weeks.

  • Mask wearing indoors will continue to be required. Mask wearing outside is still required in crowded spaces where physical distancing is not feasible except when actively eating and drinking.
  • It is recommended but not required that each of us, students and staff, get a COVID test when notified of close contact.
  • ALL Athletes and Dance Force participants must test weekly.

New LA County COVID Quarantine Guidelines

This is summary of the letter that went out regarding updated guidelines.

  • If your student contracts COVID OUTSIDE of school, they will automatically need to quarantine at home for 5 days minimum.
  • If your student is exposed to COVID IN SCHOOL (in the classroom, etc), are asymptomatic, and agree to test; they do not need to stay home from school. They will be required to a) Test on Day One of Notified Exposure; b) Test again on Day Five of Exposure; and c) Be required to wear a mask BOTH indoors and outdoors for 10 days from the initial exposure; and remain at home and avoid ALL OTHER activities outside of school (going to store, movie theater, fast food, etc). According to LACDPH, students who abide by these protocols at school, may continue to attend school…this is considered MODIFIED QUARANTINE.

Families will continue to receive e-mails from HDS informing them that their child(ren) may have been exposed to COVID at school; however, this DOES NOT necessarily require full quarantine. Rather, it is intended to inform families of exposure.

VHS Testing Center

Reminder that all participants must register for testing prior to arriving at VHS.
