Spring 2021 Athletics and Extracurriculars Information

CUHSD schools will provide in-person extracurriculars and athletics in alignment with the latest California Department of Public Health and Santa Clara County Department of Health Guidance. This page will serve as a resource for information on the latest guidance and information related to in-person extracurricular activities and athletics. 
Athletics
 
  • Updated on March 4, 2021 to add requirements that go into effect March 5, 2021 that would:
    • Require masking for youth and adult sports participants, coaches, and support staff.
    • Specify that teams can return to competition only if they adhere to the stricter requirements in place for college teams, which include rigorous testing requirements around each competition, following contact tracing protocols, and coordination with local health authorities.
Extracurricular Activities
To the extent possible, schools may expand in-person activities and extracurriculars in alignment with the latest state and county guidance. 
 
  • Outdoor singing and band practice are permitted, provided that precautions such as physical distancing and mask wearing are implemented to the maximum extent possible. Playing of wind instruments (any instrument played by the mouth, such as a trumpet or clarinet) is strongly discouraged. School officials, staff, parents, and students should be aware of the increased likelihood for transmission from exhaled aerosols during singing and band practice, and physical distancing beyond 6 feet is strongly recommended for any of these activities.
