COVID Information

  • Updated August 17, 2022


    Masks are highly recommended for all students and staff while indoors. Please note that mask guidelines may change at any point during the school year based on a decision of the Board of Education, in consultation with health orders by the county’s public health department.


    To limit the transmission of COVID and the safety of all, we continue to encourage all staff, scholars, and family members to get vaccinated and boosted, in addition to wearing a mask. Vaccination locations are on the OUSD COVID site.


    COVID-19 vaccinations are not currently required for students to register for or attend school in person for the 22-23 school year.


    Families can pre-register for COVID testing at the OUSD COVID site.


    At-home test kits will also be available at all schools for distribution to staff and students during back-to-school events, and for use prior to everyone arriving for the first day of classes.


    We will only offer a full in-person instructional program this year. If you desire a virtual option, please reach out to as soon as possible to gauge space and available for a virtual program.
