Join Us to Keep Neighbors Healthy
Dear Mountain View, Los Altos, and Los Altos Hills Families,
Local authorities have shared with us their concerns and observations that groups of children and teenagers are out and about and seeming to ignore the social distancing protocols. As the superintendents charged with the education and well-being of local children, and as your neighbors, we want to provide clear and specific guidance related to the directive on social distancing and shelter in place in place for our community. As COVID-19 continues to spread at an alarming rate throughout the state and nation, it is absolutely essential that we all do our part to protect our communities and look out for one another by complying with these directives.
Please take a look at these helpful FAQs from Santa Clara County Public Health Department to understand how to follow the directives.
Here are some simple tips:
- Please adhere closely to the directives and guidance from Public Health and make clear to your family that you expect them to do the same.
- Practice excellent hygiene and pay close attention to your health.
- Please continue to buy only normal quantities of essential supplies, food and medicine. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and other essential services will remain open.
We know many of our families may have questions about these regulations and how to follow them with children and young adults at home. While children may not be as susceptible to serious illness from the novel coronavirus, they can still get sick and spread disease to those who are most vulnerable. Please be sure your children are practicing strict social distancing and excellent hygiene.
Here are some tips health experts are passing along to those of us with children or teenagers at home:
It is up to all of us--every member of our community--to protect public health. We have the ability, by working together, to mitigate this devastating health crisis.
