 Davis Joint Unified School District, in partnership with the Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency, announces that the Valley Oak Preschools (including Headstart), and the Adult Living Skills Program will be closed for one day on Friday, May 26, 2017, due to the outbreak of Norovirus.

 

Norovirus can cause stomach pain, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and more than 3,000 students have been ill for the last three weeks in Yolo County. Our school has worked hard to prevent Norovirus from spreading; however, our school continues to see an increase in sick students at a higher percentage than most schools in the county.  The decision to close our specific school site for this one date was made because of the percentage of students and staff in our programs that have reported symptoms over the last three weeks.

 

To prevent spread of the virus and to perform further deep cleaning/disinfection of our site, the school will be closed on Friday, May 26, 2017 and will reopen on Tuesday, May 30.  We apologize for the short notice and understand how this can affect families, but we need to take a more aggressive approach to end the outbreak.

This year we will be using a finals schedule that allows students blocked time to take their final exams in all of their classes. The purpose of this schedule is to allow 9th grade classes to have a more definitive high school experience, and to allow teachers to give a comprehensive final or project with a quality time frame. The shortened day also allows teachers time to assess final tests and projects while concluding curriculum for the year. The finals schedule will be used at all four junior high campuses to allow students to put their best effort forward towards their final exams. Below you will see the schedule that will be followed the week of May 31st through June 2nd. Please be aware that the school day will end at 12:50 with students going home afterward. There will be a bag lunch available at this time for students who would like to get lunch. Please contact the Emerson office at 530-757-5430 if you have any questions.

The following update is for all DJUSD employees and DJUSD parents/guardians.

 

                                                NOROVIRUS UPDATE

May 19, 2017  

 

 

The following is updated information about the recent outbreak of the Norovirus in our region and school district.

 

What is the Norovirus?

According to County Health officials, Norovirus is a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, fever, nauseau, vomiting and diarrhea. The virus is passed through touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, close contact with an infected person or eating contaminated food or drink.  County Health experts report that the spread of virus is continuing and encourage the public to take extra precautions to curb the spread. Visit Yolo County Norovirus website and Press Releases.

 

What should I do to protect myself and others from the virus?

There are three key actions you can take to help prevent the spread of Norovirus:

  1. Report absences related to stomach illness symptoms to your school office.
  2. Encourage the practice of regular hand washing, especially before meals.
  3. Stay home an additional 48 hours after symptoms resolve. (Health experts warn that individuals are still highly contagious in this timeframe.)

Has the Norovirus affected Davis schools?

Norovirus cases have been confirmed in our schools. Over the last two weeks, the numbers of new cases do not appear to be growing rapidly.  We continue to see reported absences across the district, but the attendance rates are generally remaining steady.  That said, because this virus outbreak is highly contagious and the County Health experts have told us the spread has not peaked, we anticipate we will continue to see Norovirus absences throughout the end of the school year.  Certain school campuses have reported more staff or student cases than others, but, at this time, the virus is not disrupting normal school operations at any campus.

 

What is DJUSD doing to protect schools and students?

DJUSD is taking a three-pronged approach to addressing the current health situation:

  1. Daily Monitoring of Possible Cases and Regional Coordination

Over the last two weeks, our schools have have been tracking absences of students and employees with symptoms that may be caused by the Norovirus. Lead district adminstrators have been monitoring the numbers and trends as well as particpating in regular teleconferences led by Yolo County officials to talk about regional trends, cleaning recommendations, health updates and recommendations.

  1. Disinfecting and Deep Cleaning Efforts across Campuses and in Targeted Areas

Ensuring that we keep students and school learning environments safe and clean is a top priority.  DJUSD is diligently deploying extra resources to combat the spread of the Norovirus in our schools with the use of proper disinfecting agents. By tracking new cases on a daily basis and coordinating with county and federal entities about proper chemical use, we are able to target additional resources appropriately and effectively.  Custodians are working throughout the day to respond to calls as well as to cleanse and disinfect high contact point surfaces (doorknobs, restrooms, water fountains, keypads, etc.)  Additionally, our maintenance team is deploying crews to schools for evening and weekend deep cleaning.

  1. Education and Communication to Employees and the School Community

Keeping the community up to date on the current situation is a priority. DJUSD has issued a series of updates for employees and school site leaders. In addition to this communication, an update went out to all DJUSD parents/guardians early last week.   Updates, press releases and information from County Health continue to be shared on the DJUSD website, School Loop News and on the Davis Joint Unified School District Facebook Page. The school district continues to respond to inquiries from local news media almost daily.  If you have specific questions about the  Norovirus and what is happening in our school district, please contact your school principal or our Public Information Officer, Maria Clayton at mclayton@djusd.net.

Take Notice- Health Update


A new stomach virus has been on the rise in our county and currently affecting UC Davis and Woodland schools as well as schools in Sacramento.   At this time it is not affecting Davis school operations, but cases have been identified across our district.  As the situation changes, DJUSD will keep our community posted. 
-----------
The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency is investigating a gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreak throughout the county. The most common cause of widespread GI illness is Norovirus, more commonly called the stomach flu. The organism causing the present outbreak is unknown at this time but Public Health is working to identify the organism.  Please read the press release for information about the situation.
