    Quarantine Plan #2: If the child/youth is symptomatic (regardless of whether or not they are fully vaccinated)they will need to be tested immediately for COVID-19 and be excluded from campus for 10 days.

    Quarantine Plan #3: If the child/youth is unvaccinated and has no symptomsand both the COVID-19 positive person and exposed child/youth were wearing masks during exposurethe child/youth may remain on campus3 but needs to be excluded from extracurricular activities. The contact should get tested immediately and on Day 5 after the exposure. If the test taken on or after Day 5 from last exposure is negative, the student may resume extracurricular activities on Day 8.

    If your child is unvaccinated, and if the COVID-19 positive case is a household member, all unvaccinated household members must quarantine, monitor for symptoms, and contact their health care providers to schedule testing.

    If your child develops COVID-like symptoms or your child becomes sick, you should contact a healthcare provider so that your child can be evaluated and get tested for COVID-19 immediately. Anyone, vaccinated or not, who develops COVID-like symptoms needs to get tested right away.

    If your child does not have a healthcare provider, additional testing resources are available through the Public Health Department at Be sure to let the provider know that your child is a close contact to a confirmed COVID-19 case. After receiving test results, we request that you share the results with us – immediately, if result is positive – so that we can ensure appropriate safety measures are being taken on campus.

    About Us

    Cabrillo was originally opened as an intermediate school in 1962. It was closed in 1982 because of a decline in district enrollment, accompanied by a decision to house all middle school students in the district on two other campuses. Ten years later, a projected upturn in the student population, along with a desire to provide students with smaller, more personalized middle schools, resulted in reopening the campus. As Cabrillo rededicated itself to overall excellence, emphasis has been placed on science, writing across the curriculum, and technology.

    Our student population is culturally diverse, and almost one-third of our students receive free or reduced price lunches. The occupational and educational levels of the parents run a gamut similar to our ethnicity. Approximately 10% of our population receive support from special education services, and about 25% of Cabrillo students are being educated in a language other than the one native to their homes. Diversity makes Cabrillo rich, as students have an opportunity to get a world-view within the confines of a dozen or so acres. The Cabrillo School Community is committed to providing students with a flexible and creative instructional program that employs sound educational practices supported by mutual respect, the acceptance of diversity, and the shared responsibility of school, home and community. The Cabrillo mission is compatible with the district’s intent to, “Prepare every student to succeed in an ever-changing world.”
