Roadmap to Learning Safely During My New School Year
Safety and well-being is of the utmost importance in Redwood City School District (RCSD) each and every school day. In fact, it was the school district’s strict adherence to public health guidelines during the 2020-21 school year that helped the district safely reopen in January of 2021 after a successful pilot program during the fall of 2020.
In 2021-22, RCSD welcomed students, teachers, and staff back to school campuses for in-person teaching and learning while it also adjusts to the shifting environment in order to maximize educational opportunities while keeping all students and staff safe.
Health and Safety Protocols:
In 2021-22, the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) has continued to update the San Mateo County Coalition for Safe Schools and Communities’ Pandemic Recovery Framework to help guide all San Mateo County schools. As guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to evolve, the Pandemic Recovery Framework is updated. The public health guidelines address masks, hand washing, visitors on campus, isolation periods, and other proactive health and safety measures to allow for learning to safely continue in-person on school campuses.
Following this guidance, RCSD developed its COVID-19 Safety Plan.
The RCSD COVID-19 Safety Plan addresses the protocols in the Pandemic Recovery Framework that RCSD continues to pratice in 2021-22.
