HEALDSBURG UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT November 18, 2022
Dear HUSD Families, As we begin our Thanksgiving Break we wanted to wish you all a restful week with your family and friends. Please enjoy your time together. We also wanted to share some exciting news. Starting in the month of November HUSD began a new series of video recordings from our very own HHS New Media / Broadcast Journalism class with Instructor Mr. John Chevalier. The series began with principal reports, which will continue throughout the school year. We plan on adding to the series with Superintendent reports as well as Board of Trustees reports and school reports. The reports will be communicated out through social media as well as ParentSquare. Below you will find all four principal reports. Please enjoy!

Dear HUSD Families, As Halloween and the holiday season approach, I am excited to share important changes that are allowing us to transition out of pandemic practices back to more normal operation of our schools. Know that we are in close communication with County and State agencies and will continue to follow their guidance. That said, it is a relief in many ways to relax some of the practices that have been instituted over the past 3 years. Given recent updates, we have reviewed the District’s COVID-19 Safety Plan (COVID-19 Prevention Program and Guidance Checklist) and amended the plans accordingly. The following changes were brought forward to the Board of Trustees at the October 19, 2022 Board Meeting and approved: KEY CHANGES FOR FAMILIES: Exposure Notifications: Beginning Monday, October 24, 2022 HUSD will no longer notify families of a potential exposure to a positive case. This was relaxed in an earlier CDPH update during the summer, but HUSD chose to begin the 2022-2023 school year by continuing to notify families. Now that the school year is well underway, staff believe it is no longer necessary. Student Testing:
Students who are experiencing COVID symptoms but do not have COVID can return to school without showing a negative test result once they feel better.
Students who have recovered from COVID will still need to provide a negative test result to return.
Volunteers/Visitors: Must sign in at the front office and are strongly encouraged to wear a mask on campus. However, they are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test. Finally, please be aware that we have ordered home kits for families and staff for Thanksgiving break. More information about how these kits will be distributed will be available in the next few weeks. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes or our COVID-19 safety precautions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your school’s principal.
