March 23 - Robo-Call Message to Parents/Families #2

This is San Bernardino City Unified. This evening, March 23, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health notified us that one of our staff members at Dominguez Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19.

We know this information is concerning to you. We reassure you that we are cooperating fully with the County Department of Public Health as they work diligently to notify those who may have come in contact with the staff member. Due to federal privacy laws, we are not able to provide additional information.

All schools and administrative offices remain closed as we encourage everyone to heed Governor Newsom’s stay at home orders and practice good hygiene to help keep yourself and your loved ones healthy.

March 23 - Important Message from Employee Benefits

As you may know, open enrollment for Employee Benefits takes place in April. In prior years, employees met with American Fidelity (AF) representatives and enrolled in benefits at their various sites. Roughly 15% of the District's employees enrolled online. Employees were required to actively (re)select each desired benefit even though no changes were made. Given the governor's proclamation, employees are not allowed to meet face to face with (AF) representative. Thus, we are eliminating the need for employees to actively select benefits. We are notifying employees that they will be automatically enrolled in the same benefit plans they selected in 2019/2020. This enrollment process is known as passive enrollment. Employees needing assistance can contact AF, and of course, the District's Employee Benefits staff is available by email.

Food delivery to student homes has also been suspended and all District schools will remain closed. All District employees, except for District Police, are to remain home until further notice. In addition, the San Bernardino City Unified School District will be joining other school districts in the county by extending school closures until May 1, 2020. Thank you.
