Dear Parents and Families, 

As we prepare for spring break, your child’s safety is our number one priority. Therefore, our school is distributing two (2) free rapid antigen test kits for each child before spring break. These tests are a free resource to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

Individuals should self-test no earlier than 48 hours before returning to school. Therefore, please test your child on Saturday, April 16th or Sunday, April 17th, 2022. 

Individuals who test NEGATIVE DO NOT need to upload their test result or show proof of testing and should return to school on Monday, April 18, 2022. 

Individuals who test POSITIVE should: 

  • isolate immediately and follow isolation protocols 
  • contact a doctor to make a plan for care, and 
  • upload the POSITIVE result to Daily Pass

You will need your child’s student ID number, which can be found on the Parent Portal. Once you are logged into the Daily Pass, please write your child’s information on a piece of paper: (1) full legal name, (2) date of birth, (3) test date, (4) result date, and the word “POSITIVE.” Take a picture of the piece of paper and test kit as shown in the photo: 

Then, upload the photo by logging into your Daily Pass account and selecting “Submit External Non-LAUSD COVID-19 Test Result” as shown below:

Please watch an instructional video at this link: https://achieve.lausd.net/covidvideos for a step-by-step guide on uploading your child’s POSITIVE test result. You may also contact the Los Angeles Unified Family Hotline at 213-443-1300, Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thank you for your support. Wishing you and your family an enjoyable spring break.

Sincerely,

Estimados padres y familias,

Mientras nos preparamos para las vacaciones de primavera, la seguridad de su hijo es nuestra máxima prioridad. Por lo tanto, nuestra escuela está distribuyendo dos (2) kits de pruebas rápidas de antígeno gratis a cada niño antes del receso de primavera. Estas pruebas son un recurso gratuito para ayudar a reducir la propagación del COVID-19.

Se recomienda a los estudiantes que se hagan una autoprueba no antes de 48 horas de su regreso a la escuela. Por lo tanto, por favor hágale la prueba a su hijo el sábado 16 de abril o el domingo 17 de abril de 2022.

Las personas de que den NEGATIVO NO necesitan cargar el resultado de su prueba ni mostrar un comprobante de la prueba y deben regresar a la escuela el lunes 18 de abril de 2022.

Las personas que den POSITIVO deben:

  • aislarse inmediatamente y seguir los protocolos de aislamiento
  • comunicarse con un médico para hacer un plan de atención, y
  • cargar el resultado POSITIVO en el Pase Diario

Usted necesitará el número de identificación estudiantil de su hijo(a), que se puede encontrar en el Portal para Padres. Una vez que haya iniciado sesión en el Pase Diario, por favor escriba la información de su hijo(a) en un papel: (1) nombre legal completo, (2) fecha de nacimiento, (3) fecha de la prueba, (4) fecha del resultado y la palabra “POSITIVO”. Tome una fotografía del papel y del kit de prueba como se muestra en la foto:

A continuación, cargue la foto iniciando sesión en su cuenta del Pase Diario y seleccionando “Envíe el resultado de COVID-19 externo no realizado en LAUSD,“ como se muestra a continuación:

Por favor, vea el video instructivo en este enlace: https://achieve.lausd.net/covidvideos para una guía paso a paso sobre cómo cargar el resultado POSITIVO  de la prueba de su hijo(a). También puede comunicarse con la Línea Directa para las Familias del Distrito Unificado de Los Ángeles al 213-443-1300, de lunes a viernes, de 6 a.m. a 6 p.m. Gracias por su apoyo. Deseándole a usted y a su familia una agradable vacación de primavera.

Atentamente,

Dr. Edward Trimis, Director
