Guidance for 2022/2023 School Year


LGSUHSD 2022-2023

To support safe in-person learning and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, LGSUHSD supports the following guidance based on the COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools


As of March 1, 2022, masks are not mandated.  CDPH strongly recommends that individuals continue to mask in indoor settings, especially when the community transmission rate is high.  You can view the current Covid Level in Santa Clara County here:  Know Your COVID-19 Community Level
*We will be kind and respectful of individual choices to wear a mask or not*



CDPH recommends that all eligible individuals get vaccinated against COVID-19 and remain up to date with recommended boosters.   

*Covid vaccines are not mandated for school at this time. 



MC/CA/Post Secondary

LGSUHSD plans to host several COVID vaccine clinics in the upcoming months.  Stay tuned for more information.


Testing remains a key mitigation layer to detect and curb the transmission of COVID-19.  The CDPH Covid Testing Task Force is encouraging schools to use Over-the-Counter/At-Home Antigen Testing as the primary option for the 2022/2023 School Year.  TESTING FRAMEWORK
