According to the most recent guidance by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH): "Effective March 1, 2022, the requirement for unvaccinated persons to mask in indoor public settings and businesses was replaced by a strong recommendation that all persons, regardless of vaccine status, mask in indoor public settings and businesses."
LBUSD, Orange County Department of Education, and all local boards and schools in Orange County must implement and enforce the mandates required by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) in the new K-12 school guidance. The Orange County Health Care Agency, the Orange County Department of Education, local school boards, districts, or schools may not implement policies that are less restrictive than the mandates required by CDPH which are enforceable under the California Emergency Services Act, Government Code 8665.
If you have any questions about mask guidance, please contact your child’s school principal.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has provided waivers allowing schools to offer free meals to all students. This means that school lunches are provided for free to all students who request them each day of school for the entire 2022-23 school year. LBUSD meals will continue to be prepared in-house, mostly from scratch. Please visit our Nutrition Services page for menus and additional information.
LBUSD will follow all current quarantine protocols. Our District nurses are here to support the parent or guardian of a child who has been exposed to or experiencing COVID-19 or COVID-like symptoms to help determine the next steps. Please contact the nurse assigned to your child’s site.
*For students with IEPs, please refer to your child's "Emergency Condition Plan'' for services provided during periods of quarantine. If you have additional questions, please contact your child’s case manager.
