With the upcoming spring break holiday, we are providing additional COVID-19 testing resources for our community’s safety. WCCUSD will be operating seven COVID-19 testing sites around the district the day before returning to school after spring break, on Sunday, April 10, from 9 am to 3 pm.
Starting this Monday, March 14, we are strongly recommending masks, but no longer requiring them, at all WCCUSD middle schools, high schools, and central offices. Starting on April 15, after we return from spring break, masking will be strongly recommended but no longer required for all WCCUSD schools and central offices, including Pre-K, TK, elementary and K-8 schools.
Currently, all WCCUSD employees and students are required to wear a mask at all times, other than eating, while at school and work. Starting on Thursday, March 3, outdoor masking will no longer be required for WCCUSD students and employees. Students and employees are still required to wear masks indoors. Masks will not be required for students outside during the lunch period.
School is in session on both April 1, 2022 and May 27, 2022. On the district calendar, these dates are listed as “reserve days” and that there will be no school. These “reserve days” were used When the omicron surge hit our school communities hard in January, and so many of our students and staff were out sick, we opted to use those flexible “reserve days” at that time, on January 7 and January 10.
Presidents’ Week is here! Before we head into the break, we have a few announcements to share with you, including scholarship opportunities for students, upcoming events, the WCCUSD Annual Job Fair, COVID testing and vaccine clinic updates.
Presidents’ week is February 21 - February 25 and the District will host seven testing centers on Saturday, February 26, 2022 and Sunday, February 27, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m for all students and staff to get tested before the return to school on Monday.
