Message from Laura Fratilla – San Elijo Hills Community Association – Board President

Hi All,

I am the President of the San Elijo Hills Community Association. I wanted to reach out to say we have a great community with wonderful people who are helping one another.

At this time, I have a special concern for our elderly in San Elijo Hills. I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to their elderly neighbors (either by phone/email/note on the door). Let them know what you are willing to do to help them. All folks 65+ have been asked to self-quarantine.

I have reached out to San Elijo Hills Albertsons and requested that they have a time designated for seniors to shop during the week. Hoping this will minimize exposure for the older folks in our community. The manager told me he was going to try to get approval from corporate to implement that policy. I will keep you updated when they get back to me.

I also asked about ordering online with curbside pickup for all. He seemed to think that it was not feasible at this time but might consider it for the future.

Thank You – Laura Fratilla – San Elijo Hills Community Association – Board President

San Marcos Unified School District UPDATE 3/13/20

March 13, 2020

Dear San Marcos Unified School District Community,

Since the emergence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have partnered with the San Diego County Office of Education and followed the guidance of the San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services in order to ensure the safety and security of our students, staff and community. Based on current information, there are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in our district.

After careful deliberation and with the support of local public health officials, we decided to close our District schools effective March 16th through April 10th.  This includes the cancelation of all district events and activities on our campuses. We anticipate re-opening our schools on Monday, April 13th.

We know that schools provide many essential programs to our immediate community and understand that closing schools will cause challenges for many families. We thank our Child Nutrition Services Department who will be able to prepare and provide nutritious meals at all of our schools on a “grab & go” style on a daily basis. Meals may be picked up at each school from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Beginning Monday, families and students are encouraged to access our Student Learning Activities tab located on our website. There, you will find resources to engage your children during the school closures. You will also find a School Closure Q&A section about the impact on student grades, SAT testing, among others.

We plan to send separate communication to district employees addressing our immediate next steps.

We will continue to monitor this very fluid public health situation and plan to provide updates during the course of our school district’s closure. In addition to district-initiated communication, please refer to our website (www.smusd.org) and social media accounts for updated information.

Thank you for your support and cooperation during this time.

Sincerely,

Dr. García

Superintendent

What can I do to prevent getting COVID-19?

There is currently no vaccine available to protect against COVID-19, but it is recommended for everyone to get their flu vaccine and practice proven preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Support local businesses

The City encourages residents to keep local businesses in mind when shopping for goods and services. If you find yourself staying in more due to COVID-19 concerns, consider purchasing a gift card at your favorite restaurant or store to treat yourself at a later date.
