Possible Family COVID 19 Exposure

We have been informed by a parent, but have not yet been contacted by the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA), that two members of a family who have students attending SOC have tested positive for COVID-19. At this time, there is no confirmation that these students are also infected. However, we are passing along this information to you out of an abundance of caution, as we have been out of school for almost two weeks. If we learn more about this situation or any other information changes, please be assured that we will notify you. We believe is the right thing to do for our OPA community.
