Science Olympiad - Last Saturday, Lynbrook Science Olympiad participated in the Aggie Science Olympiad Invitational at UC Davis — competing against 50 teams from 30 high schools up and down the West Coast. Lynbrook Science Olympiad sent two teams of 15 students each, who placed 2nd and 4th overall. Across 23 events spanning science and engineering, 23 students won 18 Top 5 medals. Good luck to Sci Oly as they prepare for Regionals in March!

We continue to make at-home antigen test kits available while supplies last. Staff and students can come to the GSS office and see Mrs. Melissa Tao. At home tests are also available again from the US government at https://www.covid.gov/tests. Masks are encouraged but not required and are available by request in the GSS office.
With COVID, RSV, and the flu season, it is critically important that staff and students stay home if sick to keep from spreading any of these illnesses to others. As a reminder:
- Staff and students who develop new, unexplained symptoms should not return to campus until it is clear that symptoms are mild and improving or are due to a non-infectious cause (e.g., allergies). This includes waiting until 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
- Positive COVID-19 cases must be reported to your school site. When reporting an absence and/or positive COVID-19 case, explain the symptoms you are experiencing, the date of onset of these symptoms and whether you have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. This information will help staff to advise you on next steps per County Public Health guidelines. Contact Assistant Principal Tara Grande (408.366-7707) and/or Attendance Technician Jena Rajabally (408.366-7708) for assistance.
- Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must continue to follow the CDC's Isolation Guidelines, staying home and isolating for at least 5 days. Individuals may return to school on Day 6, IF they no longer have symptoms AND have a negative COVID-19 test. Otherwise, individuals may be required to isolate for up to 10 days if symptoms persist and they continue to test positive
