Dear Elk Grove Unified Students, Parents and Families,

Happy Holidays!

We have a brief health and safety update for you in light of changing conditions related to COVID-19 and the Omicron variant.

Making Testing Available Before Returning to School for Students, Staff and Their Families

  • We are reopening three of the EGUSD COVID Clinics next week to offer a local testing option for students, staff and their families. We hope this reduces any anxiety anyone might have as we begin returning to in-person learning starting January 3rd.

EGUSD Health & Safety Plan Updates

EGUSD Receipt of Home Test Kits for Students

  • District officials are currently working with public health officials regarding the receipt of COVID-19 home testing kits for students. We have a plan ready to both receive and then distribute the kits once they arrive. We will also work with public health officials to provide informational resources.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic 12/28

  • Lastly, we have one more COVID-19 vaccine clinic before the end of the year that we want to remind you about on December 28th at Harriet Eddy Middle School. It is open to the public and will offer 1st, 2nd doses for those 5+ years of age and older and booster shots for those eligible.
