Community Health Update

Prior to the Spring Recess there was an increase in COVID positive cases in grades 3rd and 4th at Bacich school. Based on this data, KSD collaborated with Public Health to offer two COVID mitigation strategies:

  1. Provide site based COVID Testing on Monday, April 11 and Wednesday, April 13.
  2. Reinstate indoor face covering for grades 3rd and 4th from April 11 to April 15. On April 18th, all grade levels will resume recommended indoor face coverings.

Thank you in advance for your vigilance and care in minimizing COVID transmission across our schools and the Kentfield/Greenbrae community

When to Keep Your Child Home

If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please report it to our school nurse, Laurel Yrun at lyrun@kentfieldschools.org immediately.
