• The vaccine mandate deadline is July 1, 2023.

    We believe vaccination is part of a comprehensive strategy in slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, along with following safety guidelines and conducting weekly testing. On this page you can find information and resources regarding WCCUSD's COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.

  • Message from the Superintendent: Mask Update for May 24, 2022

    As we reach the last few weeks of the school year, I’d like to share an update with you about our mask policy. We will continue to follow the guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and strongly recommend all students and staff wear a mask while at school or work. Wearing a mask is part of the district’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy, and masks should be made available in every WCCUSD classroom.

  • Vaccine Mandate Update for May 6, 2022

    Because the State has moved the implementation date of any student COVID-19 vaccine requirements to “no sooner” than July 1, 2023, our District will align with the state’s date of July 1, 2023, as well. Students are not required to get the COVID-19 vaccine before that date.

  • COVID testing update

    We have some important information regarding COVID-19 testing that we want to share with you. The district is shifting more testing support and resources to school sites to support the new group tracing process. As a result of these efforts, the three testing centers at the District Office, Alvarado Adult School and Ohlone Elementary School will be closed as of this Friday, February 11.

  • WCCUSD Begins Group Tracing Effective February 7, 2022

    Effective Monday, February 7, 2022, the West Contra Costa Unified School District has adopted a group tracing approach to contact tracing for COVID-19 cases at our schools. This approach allows for a quicker and broader response to cases identified in school settings, accomplished through prompt notification, testing, and isolation protocols. This strategy also allows for schools to provide safe in-person instruction without undertaking intense contact tracing processes to identify individuals within a specified radius of someone infected.
