Home Symptom Screening (5-Star)
To assure health and safety of all students and staff, daily screening for COVID-19 symptoms and possible exposure before arriving at school is required.
Complete the Home Symptom Screening each day before your students attends school - click button below. You will be directed to a form where you will answer two simple health symptom screening questions and submit.
You will need your student's ID number to complete the screening.
PVUSD's Home Symptom Screening form can be accessed on a Chromebook, using a phone or any device with Internet access.
If your student is feeling sick, please keep them at home and contact your student's school. If your student is waiting for COVID test results, please keep them home until they receive the results and they are negative. If the results are positive, PVUSD will follow standard operating procedure #14 below.

School Timelines & Schedules
Schools will return to regular schedules. Check with your school site for their specific school schedule.
Health & Safety
Health and safety has been, and continues to be our #1 priority in PVUSD. We follow California Department of Public Health (CDHP) guidance to ensure our students, families, and staff stay healthy and safe.
The CDHP and CalOSHA guidance includes the following:
Implement symptom and exposure screening for all staff and students at home each day before leaving for school. Symptoms include: Fever/chills, Cough, Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle/body aches, Headache, New loss of taste/smell, Sore throat, Congestion/runny nose, Nausea/vomiting, Diarrhea
Masks at Schools:
Outdoors - Masks are optional outdoors for all in K-12 school settings. CalOSHA recommends that employees not fully vaccinated wear masks when outdoors if less than six feet from another person
Indoors - Masks are required in all classroom and school non-classroom settings, including hallways, school offices, restrooms, gyms, auditoriums, etc. Adults in K-12 school settings are required to mask when sharing indoor spaces with students. Persons exempted from wearing a face covering due to a medical condition, must wear a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge, as long as their condition permits it.
School Buses - Masks are required on school buses
There are no distancing requirements for the classroom. However, out of an abundance of caution, PVUSD will have 3-feet distancing in the classroom. On school buses, it is recommended to maximize space between students and between students and the driver, and open windows to the greatest extent practicable. Two windows on a bus should be opened fully at a minimum.
Surveillance Testing for Staff
PVUSD has implemented a bi-weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing program for all staff. Surveillance testing is used to measure and monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 among asymptomatic staff in our schools and District.
PVUSD COVID-19 Data Dashboard
PVUSD is sharing data about COVID-19 cases to keep the public informed about how the pandemic is affecting the District .
Case counts represent the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with PVUSD schools and buildings. Case counts are not a measure of transmission in schools and numerous studies have shown that schools are not sites of significant COVID-19 transmission.
The dashboard shows the total number of known COVID-19 cases affecting both students and staff since our return to in-person instruction on April 5th, 2021
PVUSD offers a wide range of social/emotional support resources for our students, families and staff members. Click the button below for more information and resources.

HVAC System Upgrades
We have been upgrading HVAC systems at our schools to meet state and federal guidelines.
Click the button below to see the current status of HVAC systems at each of our schools, classroom by classroom.
CDPH and CalOSHA Guidance:
For indoor locations, employers are required to evaluate how to maximize ventilation with outdoor air; the highest level of filtration efficiency compatible with the existing ventilation system; and whether the use of portable or mounted High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration units, or other air cleaning systems, would reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
For indoor spaces, ventilation should be optimized, which can be done by following CDPH Guidance on Ventilation of Indoor Environments and Ventilation and Filtration to Reduce Long-Range Airborne Transmission of COVID-19 and Other Respiratory Infections: Considerations for Reopened Schools.
