Covid Health and SAfety Information

San Ramon Valley USD fulfills all requirements from the California Department of Public Health and Contra Costa Health Services.

For the 2021-22 school year, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District has returned to full in-person instruction, while also offering an Independent Study Remote Option for those who are not ready to return to in-person learning.

We are excited to have our students back on campus full time. We need to work together to create and maintain safe campus environments so that in-person teaching and learning can continue. To make sure we succeed, this effort will take our entire community of students, parents and staff.

As requirements change, we will update our practices and protocols and communicate those changes.

The resources on this page provide information for both our Virtual and In-Person families. Select any link to find out more information.



 

safety & compliance Information  ____________________________________________________

 

Masking:  

All masking protocols are aligned  with the Centers for Disease Control and California Department of Public Health

All students are required to mask indoors; adults are required to mask when sharing indoor spaces with students, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are optional outdoors for all in school settings. Masks may be removed if it is necessary to eat indoors.

All students 2 years and older, as per state requirements, must wear a mask unless they have an exemption.

Distancing:

Minimum distancing in classrooms is not required. However, schools will maximize physical distance as much as possible while eating (especially indoors) since masks must be removed. Using additional spaces outside of the cafeteria for mealtime seating such as classrooms or the gymnasium can help facilitate distancing.

Hand Hygiene:

Handwashing and hand sanitation will continue to be prioritized throughout the school day. 

Ventilation:

Fresh Air- We encourage introducing fresh outdoor air as much as possible by opening windows or doors where practicable. If opening windows poses a safety or health risk (i.e. smoke, pollen, etc.) to persons using the facility then the windows should remain closed.

Improved Air Filtration- The District has upgraded all HVAC air filters to MERV-13, which meets the guidance from the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) on how best to handle COVID-19.

Outdoor Air Ventilation- The ventilation systems all meet California Title 24 code-required ventilation rates. Wherever possible the District staff have opened the minimum outdoor air dampers to reduce or eliminate recirculation.

Ongoing Ventilation- Wherever possible the District has disabled “demand-controlled ventilation” (DCV). DCV is a setting that automatically adjusts the ventilation rate provided to a room/space to save energy in response to changes in condition such as occupants or indoor pollutant concentration.

Systems Maintenance- The District replaces and checks air filters and filtration systems quarterly to ensure optimal air quality. This task is ongoing.

orCOVID Signs & Symptoms:

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19,  stay home from school and follow the reporting, testing and quarantine guidance below.

  • Students who are ill at school with symptoms of COVID-19 will be sent home. 

  • Reporting Illness to schools

    • If your student is home ill with symptoms of COVID-19, report the absence to your school's attendance office

View this Covid-19 Requirements document for complete instructions on what you need to do to return to school following an illness with Covid-related symptoms, being identified as a close contact or receiving a positive Covid test result.

 

View this document for an example of how to count the days for isolation and quarantine for schools.

Per County guidance, vaccinations are not required. However, SRVUSD strongly recommends and encourages all of our employees and eligible students to be vaccinated. Vaccines are available for people ages 12 and up.  Please see CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Page 

If a student is exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, those who are vaccinated will not need to quarantine. Those who are unvaccinated will need to quarantine for ten days.

We also encourage you to share your vaccination status with the school, as this will help with contact tracing and quarantine protocols, should there be a positive test. To confidentially record your student's vaccination status with the District, please provide proof of vaccination to your school site.

All positive cases will be reported per County Guidelines.

The District Dashboard will be maintained to reflect positive cases.

School sites will follow up with affected families to ensure continuity of education.
