2022-23 COVID Protocols in RCSD Schools

2022-23 COVID Protocols in RCSD Schools

Committed to providing students with a safe and supportive, inspirational and rigorous, joyful and inclusive environment for all learners, Redwood City School District (RCSD) continues to prioritize safety in 2022-23, protecting the health and safety of students, employees, and visitors. 

The District’s strict adherence to public health guidelines during 2020-21 and 2021-22 contributed to RCSD schools remaining open since the District first reopened its first classrooms in September of 2020. In 2022-23, RCSD continues to follow several recommendations protecting in-person teaching and learning on school campuses.

Health and Safety Protocols:

During the summer of 2022, the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) published the COVID-19 Safe Schools Framework, replacing the Pandemic Recovery Framework, which was first created to guide the safe reopening and operation of public and private schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. RCSD reopened classrooms in September of 2020, launched a Pilot Program in November, officially reopened the District in January 2021, and extended the reopening in the spring of 2021. The SMCOE developed the COVID-19 Safe Schools Framework in consultation with San Mateo County Health (SMCH), reflecting guidance for schools and districts including from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). 

Several updates have been made during the 2022-23 school year to the COVID-19 Safe Schools Framework. Following this guidance, RCSD families, employees, and visitors can expect the following protocols in place in 2022-23:
