The Foundation for Hispanic Education students and families were notified by the next business day. The organization has conducted a deep cleaning and sterilization of every classroom, common areas, and office space by Moreno’s & Associates.

What does secondary exposure mean? 
The child was near someone who has been diagnosed to have COVID19. The child was NOT been diagnosed.

Was it a student from RCLA or LCPA? 
Since students at both schools share common spaces we alerted both campuses as a precautionary measure.

Updates on these activities are forthcoming based on additional direction from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and County of Education.
