Brea Olinda Unified School District is committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of our students and staff. In order to keep our community informed, BOUSD has created a COVID-19 Dashboard consisting of medically confirmed COVID-19 cases of students and staff (in-person instruction only) on our campuses. This data will be updated as COVID-19 cases are medically confirmed. Each confirmed case will remain listed for 10 days. In the event of a confirmed case, principals or school staff will also communicate new cases directly to their communities. Please note that our District will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The Dashboard also provides information about BOUSD’s communication process, parent reporting requirements, information about how families and students can limit the spread of COVID-19 and links to resources.
It is going to take a concerted effort to keep our students, staff and families safe. In addition to health and safety measures taken on our campuses, we encourage families to be proactive and to reinforce the importance of hand-washing, physical distancing and face coverings to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Also, please visit our Guidance on Parent/Student Illness page. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is awaiting test results, please keep your child at home and notify your school during regular business hours, or call and leave a message at 714-831-1040 after hours. If your child has any symptoms associated with the coronavirus, make sure they stay home and get tested if necessary.
Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement of other symptoms. A doctor’s note will be required to return to school. Finally, keep children home when they are sick. Schools will work with students and families to maintain confidentiality and to help continue your student’s education.
