On Wednesday, March 16, 2022 the HUSD Board of Trustees took action to move from a mandatory masking policy to one that makes indoor masking highly recommended. This is in line with current recommendations with the CDC, State, and County Health Departments. To view the presentation from last night click here: English / Spanish.

This change is to take effect immediately at both Healdsburg High School and Healdsburg Junior High. Thus today, students and staff may have chosen to mask or not to mask indoors. 

Elementary sites will move to this beginning on Monday, April 11th, allowing parents more time to get younger students vaccinated or make alternative arrangements for their families.

I do want to share that should there be an exposure, any student/staff would have to mask indoors for 5 days. Furthermore, Dr. Mase has shared that she would institute mandatory masking in all schools should Sonoma County hit a case rate of 20 new cases per 100,000. (currently at 6.3 new cases per 100,000, back to the extremely low levels prior to December). Thus, masks, though they may be off for some, are not necessarily gone forever.  

I know that many have strong feelings on both sides of this issue and want to thank you for working with us through this transition. On many levels, this is an exciting development as we move from pandemic to endemic. Nearly two years after shuttering our schools and retreating to Zoom, we are taking an important step back to “normal”.

Thank you again for your ongoing  support as we navigate through this together. Please read on for more important information regarding upcoming vaccination clinics and as always, feel free to contact me or your site principal directly if you have any questions.

HUSD Indoor Sports Plan

On July 9, 2021, California’s Governor signed into law Assembly Bill 130 (“AB 130”), which made significant changes to independent study laws for the 2021-22 school year.

For the 2021-2022 school year, all public school districts are required to offer an independent study option to students and families to be made available to students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian. HUSD sent home communication about this on August 4, 2021.
