Following the Governor's press release yesterday, additional information has been received regarding changes to state school mask mandates. Specifically:

1) District staff are included in the mask mandate changes. Thus, the current indoor mask mandate will expire after March 11, 2022, for students AND staff. 

2) School buses serving K-12 populations are considered a school setting and accordingly, masking remains required through March 11, 2022, after which time masking will be strongly recommended.

The district remains subject to prevailing public health guidelines/orders at any given time.

Contingent upon board approval, masks would become optional for students in indoor school settings after March 11, 2022. The district awaits guidance from Cal/OSHA regarding mask requirements for staff.
