Health & Safety Practices

  • Student/sta­ff use self-health screening prior to arrival, stay home if you are sick
  • Masks recommended indoors and on buses
  • Frequent hand washing/sanitizing
  • Daily cleaning/disinfecting
  • Increased classroom ventilation

*Health and safety guidelines are directed by the California Department of Public Health and the Fresno County Department of Public Health. For more information visit: K-12 Guidance 2021-22 School Year (https://www.cdph.ca.gov/)


California Department of Public Health recommends masks be worn indoors at K-12 schools regardless of vaccination status unless the individual has an authorized medical exemption.

Contact Tracing

All reported positive COVID-19 cases will be subject to Group Contact Tracing guidelines. All who were in a cohort (classroom, club, sport, etc.) with the positive case during the exposure period will be notified by group notification. This notification does not mean your student was a close contact, but that they may have been.

Parents will be asked to monitor their students for symptoms while the student continues going to school in-person. Parents can also opt-in to have their student(s) COVID tested at school during their weekly scheduled testing times by completing a consent form.

Staff Quarantine Protocol

Staff Quarantine Protocol

Staff contact tracing and quarantining protocols are governed by Cal-OSHA and therefore are different than student protocols, which are governed by CDPH.

  1. Individual identified as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case
  2. Contact tracer identifies if individual is fully vaccinated or not
    — If fully vaccinated and showing no symptoms of COVID-19 there is no need to quarantine and the process ends.
  3. If close contact is unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or is showing symptoms of COVID-19, the individual is sent home to quarantine for 10 days from their last exposure to the positive case
  4. The close contact may return from quarantine on day 7 if they are able to provide a negative diagnostic COVID-19 test result taken on day 5 or day 6 following their exposure

*Fully vaccinated means individuals who are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19: two weeks or more after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or two weeks or more after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen)

*Close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet or less of a positive person for 15 minutes or more cumulatively within a 24 hour period
