MUSD Safety First Guideilnes
At MHS and across all of our MUSD schools, we must follow these Safety First guidelines:
Masks are required for all students and staff when indoors, including on school buses; Face shields with neck drapes will be used for those who need face covering accommodations per medical directives; Outdoors, for high school, masks are not required but are recommended along with social distancing, especially for non-vaccinated students and staff;
Wellness Self-check (2 questions to ask yourself; this is not the daily health screening) is to be done daily for all students and staff before coming on campus. If your child is feeling ill, please keep them at home, call the school office to report the absence and our staff will let you ask you to also complete the Health Screening form on ParentSquare;
All unvaccinated students and staff will be tested weekly using school-provided, at-home test kits that must be returned to an on-campus dropbox each week within 48 hours of being administered; Vaccinated individuals who are symptomatic will be tested as well; and
All parents/caregivers who bring their student to school must wait outside the perimeter of the school before and after school (exceptions made for students with special needs), and those in vehicles must adhere to pickup/drop-off rules. We are limiting campus visitors who, and if you have an appointment or must come onto campus, please perform a Wellness Self-check and check in at the Main Office.
In addition to these safety measures, we are ensuring air quality ventilation in all classrooms and office spaces; restrooms and common areas will be cleaned at least twice daily by custodial personnel; promoting frequent hand washing and/or hand sanitizing; following case reporting through the county’s Education portal, contact tracing, and modified quarantine parameters; posting Safety First reminders throughout our campus; and implementing all current CDPH directives and local County Public Health guidance for schools.
We encourage anyone eligible (ages 12+) to consider the vaccination, those who are not vaccinated have a 600% greater chance of infection than those who are. There are free vaccination events and sites throughout the Bay Area. Vaccination is the most effective means to deter all COVID cases including the variants.
