Student Education

In alignment with CDPH guidelines, DJUSD will emphasizes the following:

  • Strongly recommend face coverings worn when indoors for all students, employees, volunteers, and visitors
  • Lunch (and all eating) may occur indoors and outdoors
  • Frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizer 
  • Optimal indoor ventilation which includes MERV 13 air filters in all HVAC systems and two portable air purifiers in every teaching space and office
  • Students and employees should stay home when sick and get tested for COVID-19 when experiencing symptoms
  • Encourage vaccination for all eligible students and employees

Handwashing handwashing icon

Everyone must wash hands with soap and water before eating, after using the restroom, and when hands are visibly dirty. Students and staff should use hand sanitizer throughout the day when handwashing with soap and water isn’t available (rub sanitizer into hands until dry). Be sure to wash your hands before coming on campus and when you get home from school! 

Face Coverings  mask image 

Face coverings continue to be strongly recommended, but not required at school or school events.  When wearing a face covering: 

  • It should be well-fitted, covering the nose, mouth, and chin and may not have a vent or valve, which is typically a raised plastic piece on the side or front of the mask
  • Choose a high quality N95 (best), KF94/KN95 (better) or medical mask

In most cases, students and staff may end their isolation after 5 days and are able to return to school.  For these cases, students and staff should wear a well fitting mask indoors and outdoors while at school or school events through "Day 10". 

Contact your teacher, site principal or school nurse if you need a face covering.
