Message from CCUSD, Assistant Superintendent Quinn

Dear CCUSD staff and families of TK-12 grade students,

Here’s our latest update regarding safety protocols/plans for students returning to school. We recognize that these protocols and guidelines change frequently and will continue to update you as changes occur.

First and foremost, CCUSD will always follow the most current LACDPH guidelines and will always prioritize the safety of our students and staff.

· In-person learning: We are still planning for a full return of students to school in the Fall; we do not expect that the LACDPH will implement capacity limits again.

· Masks and Distancing: LACDPH protocols state that everyone is required to wear masks indoors, whether vaccinated or not. Masking outdoors is optional. There are no physical distancing requirements indoors or outdoors, but that practice is still recommended where possible.

· Cleaning and Sanitizing: We are continuing our cleaning/disinfecting/HVAC filter replacement procedures from last year.

· COVID Testing and Vaccinations: We will continue to provide COVID testing whenever needed or appropriate - details will be forthcoming. Though we are no longer offering vaccines, anyone still needing a vaccine can check for locations at this site: My Turn - California COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling & Notifications

· Exposure Management: We are following the relevant LACDPH protocol which addresses how we respond to positive cases and/or close contacts. The current version of that plan from LACDPH is linked from the “COVID Communications” section of our website:

· Updates/Changes: We will continue to update COVID case information on our website Dashboard: COVID-19 Dashboard (

· Meals: School meals will be served in the cafeteria. Meals will be eaten outside when possible. Indoor seating will be discouraged.

Please feel free to contact your school site administrators with any questions or concerns.
