COVID-19 Response Plan Update: Orange County

September 23, 2020

Dear Sage Oak families,

Orange County has been placed in tier 2 on the State’s new 4-tier tracking system, Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Orange County is now permitted by the State to open schools for in-person instruction, while still encouraging virtual learning. As a result, Orange County has progressed into the Yellow phase on Sage Oak’s COVID-19 Response Map allowing for in-person services with community providers effective today, September 23, 2020. The following map will be updated on the schools' website.

In-Person Community Provider (CP) Services
Prior to receiving CP services, students must agree to and sign the schools’ waiver and release form. The CP must have also returned a signed amendment to the Sage Oak business office before allowing in-person interactions. Teachers and parents can know that a CP is approved for in-person services by referencing this list of approved in-person CPs.

Student Resides in a Different County than the Community Provider
The option to meet in-person is based on the county where the CP’s physical location is. For example, if the student resides in Orange County and uses a CP in Riverside county, the student would only be allowed to attend in-person services once Riverside County is in Yellow or Green regardless of what color phase the student’s county is in. If a student lives in Riverside County and would like to receive in-person services in Orange County, that would be allowed.

Please use the following Google form to submit any questions related to the schools’ COVID-19 Response Plan.
