In-Person Return to School Mitigation Strategies
Current information on school safety and sanitization is updated regularly and appears on the district’s website: https://www.qcusd.org/returntoschooldetails
QCUSD will regularly communicate and monitor developments with local authorities, employees and families regarding cases, exposures and updates to policies and procedures.
Facial coverings have been ordered to support the school community on an as-needed basis. Clear face shields have been ordered to support staff members who need to work in close proximity with students and desire to have a face shield.
Schools also take precautionary measures by minimizing the number of students in common areas and have added additional lunch periods in some cases.
