Hello FUSD Families, As you are aware Governor Newsom announced his executive order to end the mask mandate for schools effective March 12, 2022. Last night, the Board of Education agreed with the mask recommendations provided by the district after an extensive review of Tulare County Health and Human Services Mask Advisory, parent/student/staff mask survey data, and consultation with various stakeholder groups and health agencies. These new FUSD mask guidelines are effective March 14, 2022, for students and staff and include the following:
Provide students and staff with the option to wear masks at school, but strongly recommended
Continue to make masks available for students and staff
When an outbreak occurs in a classroom (3 or more), masks will be required in the classroom for students and staff for 10 days from when the outbreak occurs
Health Staff will continue to wear masks when working with positive student and staff COVID-19 cases
Provide anti-bullying information for students and staff to ensure students can wear masks without reprisal.
Dr. Paul Sevillano, Superintendent
