COVID-19 AND THE PROTOCOLS FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR

COVID-19 is still an active disease in our county and community. Though current variants are seemingly less severe, they are highly transmissible, and regardless of rules or guidelines, it should be assumed that the possibility of infection exists in almost every setting where people gather, including schools. 

While most mandates for students TK-12 have become guidelines, we would strongly urge that families consider following these best practices: 

Under this State-Required Guidance and in Coordination with Sonoma County Health Department here are the key recommendations and requirements:

  • We will continue to recommend, but not require masking in schools

  • We ask that staff and families conduct a health screen daily prior to arrival at school

  • If our child is ill and displaying symptoms, keep them home and test

    • Please notify your school site if your child is proven to have COVID, so that we can notify staff

    • Keep your child home for at least five days, and after five days if their symptoms are not abating and/or they are still testing positive, please keep them home until they test negative or for ten days.

  • We will continue to communicate the importance of keeping students home when sick, vaccinations, and testing as appropriate

  • Occasional visitors and volunteers are allowed.  Regular volunteers in the classroom will need to provide proof of vaccination.  We ask that all visitors register in the front office and continue to wear a mask while around staff and students.

  • While there is no longer a requirement to notify families of potential exposure to a positive case, we will continue to provide general notices as soon as possible so you may monitor for symptoms.

  • Due to the availability of at-home kits, we will no longer be offering symptomatic testing at the District

  • Regular hand washing will be encouraged 

HUSD will continue to adapt to new safety guidance. We are following the most recent health guidelines as set by the California Department of Public Health, Sonoma County Office of Education and Sonoma County Public Health. Medical and educational experts agree that schools are the best and healthiest places for students to learn and succeed, when the right precautions are taken.
