Safety Procedures & Reminders for Returning to Campus In-Person


Hours- The El Camino office is open from 8am - 4 pm Monday - Friday.


Masks - All individuals on campus are required to wear a mask over mouth and nose. If a student/family does not want to wear a mask, or is found to be out of compliance consistently, they will be moved back to distance learning. For more information on the types of mask approved click here.


Physical Distancing All staff and students are to maintain physical distancing as much as possible while on school grounds.


Required Passive Screening Families are required to take temperatures daily and monitor for symptoms before attending school on campus. Utilize the daily wellness checklist to help complete the passive screening. Additionally, everyone coming on campus will have their temperature taken. Anyone with a temperature of 99.5 F or above will not be permitted to enter campus.


Entry and Exit- All students and visitors will be required to enter and exit campus through the administration office. Upon arriving all guest will need to take their temperature.


Cleaning and Disinfecting - Just as is now the protocol in many businesses, all students will be required to cleanse their hands with hand-sanitizer upon entry into classrooms, teachers may use disinfectant on surfaces between student visits, and students may be asked to use soap-based cleanser on surfaces as well. All classrooms and work surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected daily by custodial staff.


Parking - All students and guests coming on campus are encouraged to park in the Wright Center parking lot. Students who park in the main VC lot will likely be required to go through the VC COVID screening station. VC will not be charging a parking fee for the remainder of the semester. For a map click here.


Chromebooks- We ask that all in-person students bring their assigned VUSD Chromebook with them to all of their 1:1 meetings. If you do not have a VUSD Chromebook, one will be checked out to you when you come in to your teacher appointment.


School Quad - Gathering in the quad or other parts of the campus is not permitted. The outdoor benches and tables may be used by no more than 2 people at a time and masks must be worn.


Lunch - Lunch is in available for ECHS students on the Foothill campus. Lunch will be served from 11:25-11:55 Monday through Friday. ECHS students must check in with a supervisor at the front of the school, identify themselves with their name and as an ECHS student, go through the cafeteria, take their lunch and leave the FTHS campus immediately.


Ventura College - Ventura College remains on Distance Learning for the majority of classes. Students are only permitted on campus if they are enrolled in a course that is meeting in person. Anyone who enters the college campus must pass through the COVID screening located in the East parking lot. More information regarding Ventura College's COVID response can be located here. Do not enter VC campus if you do not have an in person class. The garden and other areas surrounding ECHS/VC are closed to all students.

Ventura College’s Priority Registration

Ventura College’s Priority Registration Date for ECHS Students is April 29th to register for Summer and Fall classes. All students grades 9-11 should be signing up for Counseling Advisement Sessions with their counselor, either Mrs. Harper or Mr. Jordan, to review academic plans and select classes for Fall (and possibly Summer). Counselors will also be highlighting Ventura College’s new Electronic Dual Enrollment process, which requires student and parent/guardian approvals. Students who have not yet had their counseling appointments, or who have not yet signed up for advising, need to do so as soon as possible to have the best chance to get the VC classes they need and prefer!
