Letter from Dr. Steven Martinez, Superintendent
As we begin another great school year, we know you have questions about the status of Sacramento County Public Health’s (SCPH) tuberculosis (TB) contact investigation at one of our schools and in the surrounding community.
Public health concerns like TB are significant issues for communities throughout the state and across the country. In Sacramento County alone last year there were 84 cases of active TB. Children and adults can become infected when traveling and through family members or visitors who have the active disease.
In an effort to communicate strongly and clearly about TB and its impact, we have prepared the following information to answer questions you may have.
What do we know?
Right now there are no known infectious cases of tuberculosis in our schools. However, a Grant Union High School (GUHS) student was diagnosed with active TB in February 2014. The student was successfully treated, is no longer infectious, and medically cleared to return to school in April of this year. As part of the initial contact investigation, four students were diagnosed with active TB. It’s important to note they are also on medical treatment and they are not contagious. Another 120 students and staff tested positive for exposure to TB (latent TB). This means that their immune system has encountered the TB bacteria and has contained the infection. They are not sick and cannot pass TB infection to others. They are receiving preventive treatment so they don’t develop active TB in the future.
SCPH has screened 605 GUHS students and staff. Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye has assured us that ALL exposure to the disease occurred PRIOR to March, during the time the active case was in school.
What happens now?
All GUHS families will receive an informational letter from SCPH about next steps and the upcoming TB clinic at Grant. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with SCPH. The next clinic is scheduled to take place Aug. 22 in the Auxiliary Gym on the main campus. The focus is on individuals who were part of the original contact investigation who did not return for subsequent monitoring and a third group identified by public health officials. TB screenings will also be available from 3 to 5 p.m. on the same day for any student or staff member who wants to be tested. Everyone who is screened must return Aug. 25 so medical personnel can read their TB skin test.
Since the original case in February, our District—in collaboration with SCPH—has held two community forums and two separate sessions with parents of students who had positive skin tests. Dr. Kasirye also met twice with the Grant staff.
In addition, we are working with two independent TB consultants on implementing a Community TB Action Plan, which includes:
Yolanda Mayoral Falkenberg, the district’s Family and Community Involvement Coordinator, is our contact for all community and staff TB related questions. You can reach her at 566-1600, ext. 50035.
Please know that we are making every effort to assure the health and well-being of our students and staff, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us to protect your health and the health of the community.

School Wide Kendama Ban
Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
