COVID-19 Vaccinations

There is no vaccination requirement for students. Employees must be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18, 2021. Visit our Vaccination page.

Please read through this information carefully so that we can work together to keep our students, staff and families safe. We will continue to monitor evolving pandemic data along with state and federal requirements to update this handbook as appropriate. 

We used the following as guiding principles:

  • Follow guidance from the state and county health agencies for the health and safety of students and staff
  • Provide high quality teaching and learning for all students
  • Consider the needs of our most vulnerable students in educational programming 
  • Consider impacts to families
