COVID-19 Response & Information

Health & Safety Measures

We continue to support safe in-person learning this school year following all health and safety protocols as directed by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and local public health department.

We will continue to communicate updates or revisions of any state and local guidance and/or recommendations for schools. As a community, we will continue to ensure the health and wellness of our students, staff and USD families together.

Checking Symptoms & Staying Home When You're Sick

Prior to coming to school

Once at school

COVID-19 Positive Cases - Isolation Procedures

Student families and staff members shall stay home and notify their school site if the student/staff member has tested positive for COVID-19 and was on school grounds during their infectious period.

When an individual tests positive for COVID-19, they must still isolate for 5 days from their positive test result or date of symptom onset, whichever came first. DAY ZERO is the date of positive test or symptom onset. 

Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and ends isolation on Days 6 through 10, should mask until day 10. However, after ending isolation (with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and symptoms are improving), students may remove their mask sooner than Day 10 with two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. 

Per Cal OSHA requirements, staff and volunteers on campus may return after day 5 with the same isolation guidance above, but are expected to wear a mask the remaining days through Day 10.
