This COVID-19 Prevention Plan for VUSD schools is based upon the latest guidance received from the San Diego County Office of Education, the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, the California Department of Public Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This Prevention Plan reflects procedures and protocols that will be followed when schools are open to in-person learning for students and also procedures and protocols that will be followed if a school is open for limited services. The plan contains elements applicable to all schools in Vista Unified School District as well as procedures and protocols specific to Vista High School.

When guidance for this school changes as the result of a local Health Order or other directive, this plan will be modified and/or followed only to the extent that it complies with current operating parameters for schools. In no case will a procedure or protocol outlined in this plan be followed if it would constitute a violation of a current Health Order or any other law or governmental directive.

Key prevention practices that are incorporated in this Prevention Plan include:

  • Physical distancing between individuals to the maximum extent practicable
  • Consistent use of face coverings by staff, students and others
  • Good hygiene practices, including frequent hand washing
  • Regular cleaning and disinfection
  • Training and education for staff members, students and their families
