    Please follow these steps if you, the employee, has tested positive for covid-19

    1. Complete the Qualtrics survey at: www.stocktonusd.net/screening.
    2. Take a picture of your positive results. If it is a home test, write your name and the date on it. Email results to: riskmgt@stocktonusd.net.
    3. Enter your absences into Frontline as SICK. (employees/sites are responsible for inputting their leaves).


    Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Expired December 31, 2022 

    Employers with 26 or more employees had to provide 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (SPSL). SPSL provided up to 80 hours of COVID-19 related paid leave from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022. Up to 40 of those hours could be used for isolation and quarantine, receiving vaccines and caring for a child whose school or place of care was closed. The additional 40 hours were available only when an employee, or family member for whom the employee provides care, tested positive for COVID-19.

    Read Frequently Asked Questions on SPSL.
