Student Health Protocols

COVID-19 and other Communicable Diseases

In the 2023-24 school year, under guidance from the California Department of Public Health, we continue to implement a multi-layer mitigation strategy to reduce the spread and impact of all communicable diseases, including COVID-19. It is important for families to be aware of recommended efforts, including:

  • Staying up to date with vaccinations as vaccinations can help protect against certain diseases by working with the body’s natural defenses to safely build immunity to the disease;  
  • Promoting hygiene including frequent hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes;
  • Managing symptoms of disease, including fevers, cough, sore throat, etc., and staying home when ill;  

All students may return to in-person school attendance when they are fever-free, without medication for 24 hours and their symptoms are improving. There are no longer mandatory quarantine requirements for students who test positive for COVID-19. Students are not required to submit a negative COVID-19 test to return to school.

The District facilities optimize indoor air quality with the implementation of advanced HVAC filtration and in-room air filtration. In addition: 

  • Face masks are readily available and optional for student or staff usage at any time while on campus;
  • Each school site and the district office have free COVID-19 rapid test kits for students, families, and staff;

The district will report outbreaks of communicable diseases, including COVID-19, to the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA)  in accordance with the law. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s health, please contact your school nurse:
