COVID-19 Resources for 2021-22

If there is a confirmed COVID-19 case within our schools or District sites, we may implement multiple actions, based on Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) and State guidance. The District conducts contact tracing to identify if staff or students may have been in close contact with a person having tested positive for COVID-19. The school nurse or school administration will communicate with families if their student has been identified as a close contact.

Students

  • Regardless of vaccination status, students are required to wear masks while indoors, in classrooms, and on the school bus.

  • Student face mask exemptions are permitted with an approved mask exemption application.

Adults

  • Adults must wear masks when sharing indoor spaces with students, regardless of vaccination status. 

  • Vaccinated adults are not required to wear a face mask in public meetings where student attendance is voluntary.

  • Vaccinated employees may remove masks indoors, when not sharing a space with students.

  • Unvaccinated or unverified employees must wear masks in all indoor settings.

The school nurse, principal, or District staff will notify any staff or students who are considered to be a close contact with a COVID-19 positive person.
