BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL
BEFORE SCHOOL EVERY DAY
Complete the daily health screener before 8 AM online. This will be emailed to the emergency contact in Infinite Campus every morning at 7 AM. Your child will not be allowed on campus if the health screener is not filled out every day. If home internet fails, complete on your phone using cellular service; if all else fails, very limited paper copies will be available on arrival to school
Have your child eat a hearty breakfast (AM cohort) or lunch (PM cohort). Send a water bottle, but no snacks please, unless your child is in TK
Please have your child wear a clean, well fitted mask that fits completely over the nose, mouth and chin. Do not use a mask with an expiratory valve (a plastic valve on the front of the mask). Do not use a “gaiter” or a bandana. Consider packing an extra, clean mask placed in a clean bag in their backpacks.
WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME
If they are Positive for any ONE symptom on the health screener that day, even if you are sure that your child does not have COVID
If they are in Quarantine after close-contact exposure
If they are Isolating for symptoms or for any other reason (for example, before a planned medical procedure).
Please notify the Health Clerk (Kylie Bennett) and call the attendance line: (510) 594-2697

Tips for Safer Socializing
The CDC ranks social activities on a continuum; the risk of COVID-19 spreading at events and gatherings increases as follows:
Lowest risk: Virtual-only activities, events, and gatherings.
Moderate risk: Smaller outdoor and in-person gatherings in which individuals from different households remain spaced at least 6 feet apart, wear masks, do not share objects, and come from the same local area (e.g., community, town, city, or county).
Higher risk: Small or Medium-sized indoor gatherings where ventilation is poor, or large outdoor gatherings that make it difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and with attendees coming from outside the local area.
Highest risk: Large indoor gatherings under crowded conditions where it is difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and attendees travel from outside the local area. Prolonged contact with others and sharing of objects increases the risk of transmission, where people with underlying health conditions are at the greatest risk.
We recognize that social interaction is critical to our emotional wellbeing. We recommend students and families follow these guidelines for safer socializing during the pandemic:
PUSD Mask Wearing Guidelines
PUSD is committed to following all guidance for face coverings as outlined in the ACPHD/Alameda County Office of Education (ACOE) Guidance for Reopening Schools (dated January 28, 2021). Face coverings keep people from spreading the infection to others, by trapping respiratory droplets before they can travel through the air. All individuals, including staff and students of all ages, must wear face coverings over both their nose and mouth while at school/on campus and while in public places or with anyone who does not live in their household.
Wear your mask correctly. Be sure your mask covers your nose and mouth at all times and that there is a good seal around all the edges of the face covering.
Masks sometimes slide off your nose, so don’t be upset if someone points out that your mask has drifted down.
No gaiter style coverings, which have been shown to be less effective.
Masks may not have exhalation valves or vents as per the county Health Officer Order.
Masks should have a minimum of two layers of fabric.
Reusable masks should be washed after each use.
Here are CDC guidelines for washing your mask.
Anyone with a mask that does not fit well or is deemed insufficient will be given a disposable or reusable mask along with a take-home note asking for a better mask.
All masks should be clearly labeled with students’ name.
All students are expected to bring a back-up mask that is clearly labeled and stored in a plastic zip bag in their backpacks for use in case their mask becomes soiled or damaged.
Watch a video about proper mask usage here.
Face shields will not be used in place of masks, as face shields have not been shown to keep the wearer from infecting others.
Face shields do provide additional protection for the wearer and all those working directly with children will be offered them.
