COVID-19 Information for 2022-23

SRVUSD remains committed to ensuring that health and safety are a priority. The district will continue to follow, but not exceed, all guidelines set forth by Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). We appreciate our partnership with CCHS which will continue to serve as our support system for all COVID-related matters. We also advise our students, parents/caregivers, staff, and community to follow the recommendations found in the CCHS Information for Schools and Childcare.

Guidance

Specific information for SRVUSD students can be found in the COVID-19 Guidelines for Students 2022-23. This information in this guide is based on CCHS Information for School and Childcare as well as CDPH's K-12 Guidance for the 2022-23 School Year.

Vaccinations

State and county health officials strongly recommend that students and staff get vaccinated against COVID-19 and remain up-to-date to protect themselves from a serious illness

Air Quality

SRVUSD will continue to optimize HVAC units to bring fresh air into spaces. The district uses MERV-13 air filters which filter out both viruses. Setting filtration systems on recirculate protects the air in our facilities. 

Cleaning

SRVUSD will continue to follow the CDPH guidance that states, "Routine cleaning is enough to sufficiently remove the virus that causes COVID-19 from surfaces."

Face Masks

Face masks are not required in school spaces but continue to be recommended by the CDPH and CCHS. Face masks are available for students and staff at all district sites.

Testing

All schools have been given a stock of test kits to provide to students or staff who request one. Please check in with your school site about how to pick up a test kit. SRVUSD will continue to provide COVID-19 testing at the district office, 699 Old Orchard Drive, Danville until further notice. Testing hours are Monday-Friday 7:30-4:30. Appointments are needed.

Reporting Positive Cases

Health and safety remain a priority for our district. As such, we ask that parents/caregivers continue to report all positive student cases to your school office. All reported cases will be tracked on the District's COVID-19 Dashboard and reported in the County.

Managing Positive Cases

Students who test positive for COVID-19 need to isolate and stay home for at least 5 days. See guidance from Contra Costa Health Services. 

Student Exposure Notifications

Per current CDPH guidelines, student exposure notification letters will not be sent to families.

Volunteers

Volunteers are no longer required to upload their proof of vaccination to Be A Mentor or to provide a negative test result to the school office.

Independent Study for COVID-19

School sites will no longer initiate contracts for students with COVID-19. A contract can be requested by the parent/caregiver for COVID-19 or any other illness, by contacting the school office.
