COVID-19 Guidance


At-Home COVID-19 Testing Kits


CUHSD sites offer free at-home COVID tests for students and staff as long as supplies are available
Please contact your student's front office for more information on how your student can pick up their at-home COVID tests.
Campbell Union High School District follows the guidance provided by the Santa Clara Department of Health and Santa Clara County Office of Education in making determinations for keeping students safe in schools. This webpage provides resources that will help parents/guardians maintain a safe and high-quality in-person environment for all students.
Please continue to keep your children home if they have received a positive test or show any COVID-19 symptoms. Please call the attendance line of your school to notify the school of your child's situation. Site COVID response staff will reach out to each individual case and provide guidance directly. 
These guidelines reflect the most recent K-12 Guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and are subject to change. Any changes will be communicated to families as appropriate, and as always, our site COVID response staff will reach out to each individual case and provide guidance directly.
COVID Scenarios

Student with positive COVID test
Isolate for 5 days from the date of their positive COVID test or the start of symptoms (whichever comes first). Wear a mask through Day 10 OR until you take a total of 2 negative tests with at least one day between tests. 
Isolation can end after day 5 or later if there are no symptoms, or symptoms are mild and improving including no fever for at least 24 hours (without fever reducing medication). 
To report at-home test results, please follow the guidance in the section below titled "Using At-Home Tests to Return to School." 
Student with COVID symptoms
Isolate and get tested for COVID. Return after submitting a negative COVID test and symptoms are mild and resolving including no fever for at least 24 hours (without fever reducing medication). If symptoms persist or worsen, stay home and test every 1-2 days.
To report at-home test results, please follow the guidance in the section below titled "Using At-Home Tests to Return to School." 

Student was a close contact to another COVID case

Student may remain in school as long as they have no symptoms.

Recommended to test on Day 3-5 and recommended to wear a mask for
10 days after the exposure whenever near others. 
Student has no symptoms and has not had close contact in the home to a confirmed positive case.
Student may attend school. 
Use California Department of Public Health's most recent guidance to determine when wearing a mask will be appropriate.
It is recommended that all students use these masks or better. CUHSD is making surgical type masks available to all students at their school sites. 
What happens if a student comes to school ill?
A student who is ill and exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will be isolated in a designated area on campus until a parent or guardian arrives to pick them up. 
Will they be required to be tested for COVID-19?
As with any potential illness, any student who develops new, unexplained symptoms should not return to campus until it is clear that symptoms are mild and improving or are due to a non-infectious cause (e.g., allergies). This includes waiting until 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. CDPH Guidance strongly recommends that individuals with COVID-19 symptoms be tested immediately; you can use an at-home test and they are available for free at your child's school while supplies last.
Will parents and students be made aware if someone on campus tests positive for COVID-19?
CUHSD will continue to document and track suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 as required while maintaining required confidentiality under FERPA and state and federal law related to privacy of educational and employee records. 
If a staff member or student tests positive, will schools close? Is there a procedure in place for quarantining in the event that a person on campus tests positive?
No - schools will remain open unless our public health department determines that the number of cases warrants temporary school closure. 
How likely is it that schools may close?
Individual school closure is recommended based on the number of cases, the percentage of the teachers/students/staff that are positive for COVID-19, and following consultation with the local health officer. California law does not allow our District to offer only distance learning. The ability to offer only distance/remote/virtual/synchronous learning expired on June 30, 2020. Independent study is offered at CUHSD with the Virtual Learning Academy. While Independent study is offered, families must choose to participate in the program and our District must obtain an independent study agreement for all students participating in the program. For more information visit our Virtual Learning Academy webpage
How do I report my positive results?
You will report directly to your site via phone call to the attendance line. Our reporting protocols follow all HIPAA guidelines and we may release information to public health officials as required.
CUHSD strives to maintain all health and safety protocols at our school campuses and office. We are better together and we encourage anyone who sees a potential COVID-19 hazard (as outlined in our COVID-19 Safety Plan) to alert a school administrator or submit an anonymous concern.
