Notice of Positive Cases

Sent on behalf of Superintendent Kevin Grier:


January 13, 2022


Dear Loma Prieta & CT English Parents and Guardians,

Yesterday a positive case was identified at Loma and today a positive case was identified at CT English. As a result, the affected individuals have been notified of next steps. Our district is working closely with the Santa Clara County Public Health Department on this matter.

There were close contacts identified. Any students or staff who have been identified as being in close contact with these individuals have already received a separate communication. If you did not receive a separate communication, your child was NOT identified as a close contact.

When we receive confirmation of a positive COVID-19 case, we will not identify the individual involved to ensure their privacy and safety. We understand that it can be disconcerting to not have specific information surrounding the individual; however, it is important that we respect the privacy of our students and staff. At the same time, we want to provide you with as much information as possible. 

For specific information on the COVID-19 virus, we recommend reviewing information from the following sources:

           Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
           California Department of Public Health
           Santa Clara County Public Health Department


We have all been working to slow the spread of the COVID-19. Please know we are in direct contact with our public health departments regularly and are following all guidelines and directives strictly.

Sincerely,

Kevin Scott Grier, Ed.D.

Superintendent, Loma Prieta Joint Union School District
