Please note that at no time was our water system unsafe; however, due to a laboratory error, our water system failed to monitor as required for coliform bacteria during the month of August 2021 and, therefore, was in violation of the regulations. Even though this failure was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we did to correct this situation.
The schools of Santa Cruz County will be implementing the guidelines recently published by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Santa Cruz County Public Health (SCCPH).
In order to keep our schools open and students healthy, school districts have implemented a wide range of mitigation strategies to minimize risks at our schools, including ongoing testing for COVID-19. We recognize the importance of sports, athletics, music and other extracurricular ideas for students and are
hoping these requirements will allow students to participate fully and safely.
Dear Families of Santa Cruz County,
Today we are heartbroken. We grieve with the Aptos High School community following yesterday’s tragic loss of a 17-year-old student. Our hearts are with the student’s family, friends, the Aptos High School community, the Pajaro Valley Unified School District (PVUSD), and all of those impacted by this
unprecedented and devastating event.
Thank you for your ongoing diligence and dedication to our students and schools. Embarking into an in-person school year during a variant-driven surge in COVID-19 cases in our community has no doubt been a challenge. Students, families, educators and support staff have our enduring support and appreciation for navigating this moment with such grace.
