COVID School Safety Plan

The Pacific School is following all local and state regulations to protect the health of our school community. The following resources support our COVID School Safety Plan:

  • 21.22 COVID School Protocols (updated 3/30/2022). The Pacific School is following all local (Mendocino County Public Health) and state (California Department of Public Health) guidelines to protect the health of our school community. The PCCS 21.22 COVID School Protocols includes highlights of the practices from the CA Department of Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools that our school will be following in the 2021-22 school year. It is anticipated that some of these practices may change through the course of the year; we will update families with any significant changes. These protocols will be reviewed and updated as needed every 6-months. 
  • COVID Prevention Program (updated 8/1/2021). As of Dec. 1, 2020, Cal/OSHA’s emergency regulations requiring employers to protect workers from hazards related to COVID-19 are now in effect. The regulations require that employers, including LEAs, implement a site-specific written COVID-19 prevention program to address COVID-19 health hazards, correct unsafe or unhealthy conditions and provide face coverings. Cal/OSHA has posted FAQs and a one-page fact sheet on the regulation.
  • COVID School Guidance Checklist (updated 3/30/21). The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) developed a framework to support school communities as they decide when and how to implement in-person instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. This framework and guidance is rooted in the scientific evidence available to date and supports twin goals: safe and successful in-person instruction.
  • COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2021-22 School Year. ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regularly updates recommendations for K-12 schools. The CDPH guidance applies CDC’s recommendations to the California context, in order to help K-12 schools formulate and implement plans for safe, successful, and full in-person instruction in the 2021-22 school year. This guidance is effective immediately and will be reviewed regularly by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
