    A Message from Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch
    February 5, 2020

     
     
    Corona Virus Update:
     
    This letter is to provide an update on the novel coronavirus outbreak currently centered in China, and local measures to protect our community. Marin County Public Health continues to work closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to limit risk to local residents. There are now six confirmed cases in California, and no persons under investigation for possible coronavirus illness in Marin County.
     
    The CDC and Marin County Public Health recommend that any adult or child traveling from mainland China should be excluded from school for 14 days after they left China. Persons who have arrived from China prior to February 3, 2020 are at lower risk and do not need to be excluded.
     
    Travelers returning from China are being advised to avoid public activities and gatherings, and self-monitor at home by remaining alert for fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. If someone develops these symptoms, they should contact their healthcare provider immediately by phone, prior to traveling to a healthcare facility. Public Health will be assisting in home monitoring individuals who are at risk for coronavirus.
     
    Schools are advised to work with students who are under home monitoring to arrange supports, to help keep them up to date with their lessons.
     
    The risk of spread of coronavirus locally remains very low. Importantly, influenza continues to circulate in Marin. Students, parents, staff and visitors should take every-day precautions to prevent the spread of infections including the common cold and flu.
     
    • Encourage students and staff to stay home when they are sick.
    • Those who have a fever at school should go home and stay home until fever-free for at least 24 hours.
    • Separate sick students and staff from others until they can be picked up to go home.
    • Promote hand hygiene among students and staff through education, scheduled time for handwashing, and availability of soap and water and/or hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your face, particularly your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Teach and encourage proper cough etiquette—cough or sneeze into a tissue, sleeve, or arm (do not use hands).
    • Perform routine surface cleaning.

    We understand that this is a rapidly evolving situation that can cause worry and concern. We will continue monitor the situation and share information with our school community as it becomes available. Please do not hesitate to call the Public Health Office with any questions or concerns.

    Provisional Appointment to RUSD Trustees:
    I would like to formally congratulate and welcome Liz Webb, who was provisionally appointed by the RUSD Board of Trustees on January 27, to fulfill the remainder of Dana Linker Steele’s term which became vacant after her resignation. Please join us when Liz will be sworn in on February 11 at 6:00 PM in the Board room located at Bel Aire School during the next regularly scheduled meeting.
     
    Equity Resources for Families:
    Our schools continue to place a high priority on equity and inclusion for all students and families. Principal and teacher teams work together to find research and materials that will provide meaningful activities and professional development for the staff. The article highlighted this week was presented by the Equity Team teachers at Reed School, and has been shared with our other principals. Although Microaggressions: The Small Moments Add Up is geared toward young learners, it is very applicable for families to use with children in elementary and middle grades as it teaches critical learnings about how microagressions can create ongoing harm to individuals.  
     
    Best regards,
