COVID-19 Dashboard


The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) remains committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining confidentiality for our students, families, and staff.


As such, the district has created a COVID-19 dashboard reflecting confirmed positive cases among district students and staff on our campuses (in-person instruction only once it begins). Positive cases will be displayed for a 14 day period. The dashboard will be updated as case counts or enrollment/staffing numbers change. Please note, the dashboard will only reflect data after hybrid learning is implemented at each level (Oct. 21 for elementary schools, Oct. 26 for middle schools, and Nov. 9 for high schools). 

The dashboard also provides information about the district’s communication process, family and staff reporting requirements, information about how families and students can limit the spread of COVID-19, and links to other district resources.

In addition to the updated information on the dashboard, school principals or staff will also communicate about new cases directly to their school communities. Please note, the district will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Communication Process in the Event of Positive Cases
In the event there is a positive case on a district campus, affected individuals will be contacted directly by their school principal or a staff member. Individuals will receive a letter that may include self-isolation directions and other important information. School principals or staff members will communicate new cases directly to their school communities. Please note that our district will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 cases.

PYLUSD COVID-19 Reporting Instructions for Families and Employees
Families of a student(s) who is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 must contact their school and leave detailed symptom information and date of onset. Employees who are suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 must follow regular absence communication with school administration and SmartFind. Contact Human Resources (714-985-8410) immediately for any COVID-19 illness or symptoms so appropriate follow-up can be done. PYLUSD will maintain confidentiality throughout this process.

What Families and Employees Can Do to Limit the Spread
It is going to take a concerted effort to keep our students, families, and employees safe. In addition to health and safety measures taken on campuses and in offices, we encourage everyone to be proactive and to reinforce the importance of hand washing, physical distancing, and the use of face coverings to limit the spread of the COVID-19. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is awaiting test results, please keep your student or yourself at home and notify your school/office. If your student or you (employee) have any symptoms associated with COVID-19, make sure they/you stay home and get tested if necessary.

Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement of other symptoms. Finally, students and employees should stay at home when they are sick. The district will work with students, families, and employees to maintain confidentiality.
