The following (PDF linked below) outlines safety measures and protocols the District will implement when health guidelines permit a return to in-person instruction. In accordance with state guidelines, the district will monitor local and county data that includes the number of new infections per 100,000 residents, the test positivity rate, and the change in hospitalization rate, among others when evaluating criteria to a return for in-person instruction. Upon a potential return, the District and all District staff will adhere to orders issued by the California Department of Public Health in conjunction with local and County guidelines.
The District has installed personal protective equipment for our students, staff, and campuses. We are utilizing state and federal grants to purchase $850,000 of protective and cleaning equipment in an effort to create a safe environment for staff to return to school. More detailed information, as well as the physical safety measures that will be put in place, are outlined below.
This document will continue to evolve throughout the course of the year.
