Foster City School is following the Travel Pandemic Recovery Framework.pdf for unvaccinated people, which suggests getting tested with 3-5 days after travel AND staying home on self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
The first Wee Care collection date for this school year will be Friday, September 24. Samaritan House is currently requesting Dried Foods (cereal - hot or cold, mac and cheese, other dried meals, pasta, dried beans, rice). The Wee Care barrels will be out for two weeks and will be located in front of the office in the hallway. Children will need to deliver the items into the barrels after they enter the gates.
Please call the attendance line @ 650-312-7520. It is important that you call this number when you are calling your child is sick or absent. It is a 24-hour hotline so you can leave a message at any time of the day. When leaving a message, please leave your child's full name, classroom number, and the reason for your child's absence.
In the San Mateo-Foster City School District, we seek to maintain a safe environment for employees, students, families, and the community. To support those goals, the district has partnered with Concentric by Ginkgo to provide an optional and free COVID-19 pooled testing program. Participating in this program will help safeguard the well-being of our community. We are planning to launch this program on September 20, 2021.
Pooling can test 25 people using one test and provide results within 2 days. The testing is simple: students in a class will swab their own noses and place their swabs in a single tube (that’s the pooling step). The samples in that tube are then run as a single sample, using one test. If a positive test is received, Concentric staff will return to individually rapid test the pool to locate the positive individual(s). The pooled testing will take place weekly, on Mondays and Tuesdays, with any necessary rapid follow-up testing on Thursdays or Fridays.
Only students with completed consent forms are able to participate in testing. We strongly encourage your child’s participation because the pooled testing program is a valuable tool in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Pooled testing allows students, teachers, and staff to come to school with peace of mind.
Your child’s principal will send you information about how to sign-up for the pooled testing program.
