2021/2022 COVID-19 Information
As Washington County community transmission rates stay high, WCUUSD is maintaining multiple mitigation strategies to include:
- Universal masking indoors in all buildings
- Hand hygiene
- Staying home when sick
- Limiting visitors to essential providers
- Postponing large group gatherings in schools (such as All School Meetings and assemblies)
- Maintaining physical distance of at least 3 feet when feasible
- Voluntary surveillance testing
- Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, the CDC recommends universal indoor masking by all students (age 2 and older) , staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.
- Screening, testing, ventilation, handwashing and respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick and getting tested , contact tracing in combination with quarantine and isolation, and cleaning and disinfecting are also important layers of prevention to keep schools safe.
- Students, teachers and staff should stay home when they have signs of any infectious illness and contact their healthcare provider for testing and care. If your student has a fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, fatigue, sore throat, runny nose/congestion, headache, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea please keep them home until they have been symptom free for greater than 24 hours. Please contact your school nurse with questions about when it is safe for your child to return to school.
We look forward to welcoming families, caregivers, and community members into our buildings when it is safe to do so.
