Return to Health Recommendations

Public Health Recommendations


This plan was developed using recommendations from the Sacramento County Office of Education, Sacramento County Public Health, California School Nurses Organization, California Department of Public Health, California Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control to meet the unique needs of our school community. 

California Department of Public Health Schools Guidance FAQs issued on August 3, 2020 states: 

“Under the operative executive orders (PDF) and 2020-21 Budget Act, schools must comply with orders and guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and relevant local public health departments. Schools may comply with guidance from other federal, state, local, and non-governmental sources, to the extent those guidelines are consistent with state and local public health directives.” 

SCUSD will remain flexible in responding to changing public health conditions and will continue to revise our Return to Health plans in accordance with the most current orders or guidance provided by the CDPH.
