As of mid-June, 2020, it is still not clear if and when students will return to campuses. They will only be allowed to return when it is safe and all the precautions are in place. This can begin when Imperial County is in Stage 2B.
Families and students will be required to conduct their own health screening at home each day. Additional health screenings are not required by the local public health department. However, thermometers will be available at schools for an additional screening as needed.
Employees will also conduct their own health screening. Here is the employee health screening checklist which is similar to what the students will be required to do: Employee Self Screening Form
Face masks will be required when people cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distancing in the classrooms, before school, during passing, after school and when riding a bus.
We know that everyone needs to cover their cough and sneezes, and wash their hands often.
Schools and classrooms will have more hand-sanitizer, reminders to keep physical distancing and new procedures for activities on and off campus.
San Pasqual COVID-19 Response and Safety Plan
The San Pasqual Valley Unified School District in coordination with the Imperial County Office of Education has planned and prepared our workplace to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19. We recognize our facilities were identified as essential businesses during the COVID-19 closure to the public and some of our employees had the need to work from our facilities. As we get ready to once again open our doors to the public, and more of our SPVUSD employees return to work in the office and operations, it is critical we put in place specific measures to ensure the safety of our community and our SPVUSD families. We are ready and committed to respond in flexible ways to the varying levels of the disease transmission in our community and refine our response plans as the situation changes.
SPVUSD has coordinated with local, state, and federal officials so that timely and accurate information guides our response. It is imperative to understand that our local conditions influence the decisions that our public health officials take regarding community-level strategies, and SPVUSD will continue to abide by guidance and restrictions set in place in the Imperial County Roadmap to Recovery, as well as the provisions listed in the worksite-specific protection plans.
Like all other employers, SPVUSD has considered how best to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and lower the impact in our workplace. Among our objectives as we reopen our facilities to the public are the following:
- Maintain a healthy and productive work environment
- Minimize transmission among employees
- Provide the best services possible to our community in a safe manner
This plan also contains visitor and vendor guidelines.
