Health & Wellness

Wearing a mask helps decrease the spread of COVID-19 in the community. Masks should be worn over the nose, mouth, and chin, with no gaps. Masks with a bendable nose strip help prevent air from leaking out of the top of the mask. This video (produced by the Children’s Hospital of Colorado) helps demonstrate the proper use of masks.

We are all in this together.

For the health and safety of our children and our families, please continue to wash your hands, avoid large gatherings, and wear a face mask. Keep a spare mask (in a clean, resealable bag) in your backpack/car in case the original one gets dirty or wet. Also, before throwing away disposable surgical masks, please cut the ear loops to prevent wildlife from getting tangled in them if the masks end up in the environment.

The following reminders are from the SRVUSD website.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, stay home from school and follow the reporting, testing, and quarantine guidelines:

  • Students who are ill at school with symptoms of COVID-19 will be sent home.

  • Reporting illness to schools

  • If your student is home ill with symptoms of COVID-19, report the absence to Live Oak’s attendance line 925-803-3199

View this COVID-19 Requirements document for complete instructions on what you need to do to return to school following an illness with COVID-related symptoms, being identified as a close contact, or receiving a positive COVID test result.

Starting September 28th, school meals will be distributed in front of Live Oak Elementary School. The Free for All Student Meal program, sponsored by the USDA, is in effect until December 31, 2020. In addition to this program, USDA is also sponsoring the Farmers to Families Food Box Program that helps farmers distribute their surplus food products to families in need nationwide. Please note that the number of food boxes we receive depends on our supplier and is not something the CN Department controls. Food boxes are distributed one day a week and are available on a first come, first served basis only. We hope that our families most in need will be able to take advantage of receiving these and encourage these families to arrive early on Wednesdays to one of our distribution sites. While we do not discourage anyone, please only take the food boxes if you need them. We have enough for those that are truly in need. We do not have the same limitations with the Breakfast and Lunch Meals and therefore can provide student meals to all children 18 and under. For complete information, please visit the Child Nutrition website and FAQs.


Please take a few moments to talk to your students about the following safe procedures when walking to and from school:

    • Choose sidewalks or paths wherever possible, even if that means the trip will take a little longer.

    • Minimize the number of street crossings.

    • Cross the street safely: Stop at the curb or edge of the street. Look left, right, left and behind you and in front of you for traffic. Wait until no traffic is coming and begin crossing. Keep looking for traffic until you have finished crossing. Walk, don’t run across the street.

    • Avoid busy, high-speed or multi-lane roads, wherever possible.

    • Look for traffic at every driveway and intersection.

    • Be aware of drivers in parked cars that may be getting ready to move.

    • Obey all traffic signs and signals.

We would also ask that our parents take into consideration the following points when driving on and around our school:

    • Adhere to the 25 mph zone, and slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits;

    • Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures;

    • When driving in the school parking lots, slow down and be mindful of students crossing;

    • Refrain from unloading children at locations across the street from the school;

    • Cross the street in the crosswalks only;

    • Avoid stopping or double parking on crosswalks to let children out of the car;

    • Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing;

    • Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing out of a driveway and in areas near a school; and

    • Forgo the use of cell phones!

    • Be respectful to neighbors and their property
