Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Paso Robles School District continues to follow guidelines provided by the California Department of Public Health (CHDP).  The California framework is designed to support school communities in continuing full-time, in-person instruction.

School will begin on August 17, 2023, with similar COVID-19 protocols as June 2023.  Students may return to the school setting with or without facial coverings based on parental choice.  There is currently no student requirement for COVID -19 vaccination.

School site health professionals will continue to monitor students for symptoms of illness.  Students who exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 (without documentation of an underlying condition) will be excluded from the school setting per CHDP guidelines until they are feeling better and fever free for 24 hours. 

We are entering the next phase of COVID-19, which may include future surges and new variants. California’s approach to this next phase is based on the lessons of the last two years.  The following acronym SMARTER outlines the mitigation strategies currently in place: shots, masks, awareness, readiness, testing, education, and Rx (treatments).
