Frequently Asked Questions

For 2022-23

What safety measures are in place at my child at school?

We are implementing safety measures issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) in partnership with the Santa Clara County Public Health Department (PHD). CUSD is implementing multiple layers of mitigations to reduce the risk of COVID-19 at school. Please refer to the Mitigation Strategies section in our 2022-23 Response to COVID-19 Plan.

How are schools managing volunteers on campus?

We understand the benefit of volunteers supporting our programs and schools. Schools will permit vaccinated visitors and volunteers who provide essential services and support to the school’s educational program.
Visitors are strongly recommended to wear a mask at all times while indoors, and volunteers must show proof of full vaccination (Full vaccination = first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine).

What happens if a parent/caregiver sends a sick child to school?

Even students and adults who were feeling fine in the morning can become ill as the day goes on. Staff will be sent home immediately if they become symptomatic. Students will be isolated in a safe area to await immediate pick up by their parent/caregiver.

What is the process for a classroom if a student tests positive?

Please refer to our 2022-23 COIVD-19 Response, sections relating to managing individuals with COVID-19 symptoms or diagnosis.

Will there be instruction provided to students during an at-home quarantine?

If a student must stay home to quarantine, take-home or downloadable assignments will be provided for the student to complete until the student is able to return to class.

Where do I find information about the COVID-19 testing at school?

At-school COVID-19 testing has concluded. Please use your own at-home test or seek testing from your health care provider. Testing information is also available from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.

Are at-home antigen test results accepted for returning to school after quarantine?

CDPH recommends that antigen tests be the primary option for detecting COVID-19 in schools, rather than PCR tests. Both the professional, on-site antigen tests as well as over-the-counter (OTC) at-home antigen tests have been effective in identifying persons who have infectious levels of all known variants of the COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2).
As supplies are available, the school will provide an antigen test for each student.

How do I report my at-home antigen test results after quarantine?

Parents may verify and report the negative COVID test to the school office staff.
