  • 5/26/22 Safety Message from Dr. Hurst

    This morning, students and staff at one of our schools, Grant Elementary in Richmond, had to briefly shelter-in-place because gunshots were fired in the area. Everyone is safe: no students, staff or families were harmed and the school was not targeted. We have been in contact with the Richmond Police Department about the incident.

  • Message from the Superintendent: Mask Update 05/24/22

    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.
