The St. Helena Unified School District is committed to providing information to our community regarding COVID-19 cases while maintaining confidentiality for our students and staff. The COVID-19 case data below is updated regularly to indicate any currently confirmed COVID-19 positive case in staff members or students by school site. The data below shows currently confirmed cases. Upon learning of an individual with a confirmed COVID-19 positive test who has been on campus during their contagious period, the District notifies affected families at the school site via Blackboard Connect.
Data may reflect positive results or campus exposure from previous weeks due to delays in testing or in NCPH reporting to SHUSD.
Communication Process in the Event of Positive COVID-19 Cases
In the event there is a positive case identified who has been on campus during their contagious period, affected families and staff at the school site will be notified via Blackboard Connect. Our District will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.

As a reminder, if your child has tested positive for COVID-19, or they have COVID symptoms, please keep them home and contact your school’s main office as soon as possible. By reporting this information, you help keep our school community healthy and safe and prevent further spread of COVID-19. SHUSD will maintain confidentiality, protect student privacy, and follow FERPA protocols.
In addition to health and safety measures taken on campuses, we encourage families to be proactive and to follow the essential guidelines of staying home when sick, handwashing, and wearing face coverings to limit the spread of COVID-19.
