On December 22, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the California Department of Public Health would be expanding COVID-19 test distribution efforts to all school districts. They will provide 1-2 rapid test kits per K-12 student. Trona Joint Unified School District received the test kits yesterday and will begin distributing them today, January 13, 2022.
If parents or guardians would like to receive a test kit for their student, please go to the elementary or high school office. Test kits will only be distributed to parents or guardians of the student. Students will not be given the test kits without a parent or guardian present. The high school office will distribute kits for high school students, and the elementary school office will distribute test kits for elementary students.
The District would like to remind students/parents to carefully read the safety precautions/directions.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
The passing of AB 104 (Gonzalez), contains a provision that allows high school students to change their letter grades to a Pass or No Pass grade on their transcripts for the 2020-21 school year. Attached to this letter is a “request a grade change” form that the students will fill out and submit to the high school office. This has also been posted to our website.
Both the CSU and UC systems have issued guidance on how they will handle admissions and GPA calculations for transcripts with Pass or No Pass grades.
The CSU information can be found at the following link
UC information can be found at the following link
AB 104 requires CSU schools, and encourages UC and private postsecondary schools, to accept without prejudice any transcripts with Pass/No Pass grades.
Students will have 15 days from today to submit the “request a grade change” to the high school office. AB 104 states that the high school shall not honor grade change requests after 15 days.
The high school will have 15 days from the day the grade change application is received to change the transcript and notify the pupil and the pupil's parent/guardian of the change.
Here is a link to the letter and form https://5il.co/w96d. A more accessible version is available in the high school office. If you have any questions, please let us know.
