Yearbook Needs Your Help

Parents, send us your Viking photos to be in this year's yearbook like 8th-grade baby photos, sports & hobby photos, summer vacation photos, a photo of your Viking with their pet photo, etc. One of the reasons our yearbook is a national award-winning yearbook is because we get all our Vikings in it 3x. Please complete this Google form then buy a yearbook at the lowest price of the year at $59 at Jostens.com. by TODAY August 15. The price will go up on Monday, August 16.

COVID Protocols

Face Masks

  • Face Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status
  • Face Masks are optional outdoors
  • Lunch Time- Face masks are to be worn indoors unless students are eating or drinking, students will need to put the face mask back on when they are finished eating.

Physical Distancing

  • Physical Distancing will not be required
  • The SVUSD safety plan includes essential COVID mitigation measures such as mask-wearing, hand hygiene, regular cleaning and disinfecting, ventilation, and more
  • Lunch Time- We will do our best to have students seat three feet apart.

Screening and Symptom Checking

  • Parents are required to perform daily health screening checks at home before sending their students to schools, including ensuring each child has a temperature below 100.4 and does not show any cold, cough, or flu-like symptoms.
  • Staff is required to perform daily health and screening checks at home before coming onto campus.
  • Staying home when sick is essential for keeping COVID-19 and other infections out of school and preventing the spread of illness to others.

Close Contact

For those students and staff who have been a Close Contact to a COVID-19 positive person (including masked individuals within 6 feet for 15 minutes) there are several options that can be chosen:


1. The person can quarantine for the 10 day period as we have done in the past.

2. If the person has been fully vaccinated, they can provide proof of vaccination and remain at school/ work, and are asymptomatic.

3. "Modified Quarantine"


  • Are asymptomatic
  • Continue to appropriately mask; as required
  • Undergo at least twice weekly testing during the 10-day quarantine (This is suggested but not required in Ventura County) and
  • Continue to quarantine for all extracurricular activities at school, including sports and activities within a community setting.

Visitors

  • We will not have visitors on campus to start the year.
  • Parent meetings will be conducted on Zoom.

Lunch

  • Students will have the opportunity to eat inside or outside. If the students are not comfortable wearing a mask while eating, they should make the choice to eat outside.
  • All students will have access to the SVUSD meal programs free of charge while on campus.
