By Staff Reports
(Victor Valley)– Taylion High Desert Academy continues to monitor and adjust our operations due to the recent developments with the health, safety and well-being of our employees, students and community as our top priority. With that said, we want to inform you that we have learned that a staff member and a parent have shown symptoms which could be related to the COVID-19 virus. To our knowledge, neither has been positively diagnosed with COVID-19. Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to inform the community.
“Upon learning of this case, we took a number of immediate steps to protect the health and safety of our students, families and employees,” said Timothy A. Smith, Executive Director of Taylion High Desert Academy. “We are conducting cleaning and sanitization of the affected school sites. We notified all other personnel at the school as well, instructing them to avoid our school sites and practice social distancing.”
To protect the privacy rights of the employee and the family, we are not releasing the names of the individuals. However, we are taking immediate action to protect the safety of our employees and our families. Effectively immediately, all services, including special education support services, will be conducted remotely.
Your health is of utmost importance to us. We ask that you continue to comply with State and local orders regarding COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, remaining at home, washing your hands frequently for a minimum of 20 seconds and self-isolating if you display symptoms of COVID-19.
The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health has ordered all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence, except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors. We encourage all of our students, families and staff to continue to do so and stay safe and healthy.
