Spring Recess and COVID-19 Safety Reminders

Friday, April 8, 2022

Dear GGUSD Families,

We hope that all GGUSD students and families enjoy the opportunity to spend time with loved ones, rest and recharge during the district’s Spring Recess next week from Monday, April 11 through Friday, April 15 when GGUSD schools will be closed. 

It has been a busy winter and spring on GGUSD campuses as students enjoy the return of athletics, extracurricular events, field trips, music performances, and all that their schools have to offer. We are grateful that due to successful health and safety procedures, COVID-19 rates remain low on our campuses (case counts are posted by site on our Dashboard each week).

We encourage all students, families, and staff to remain vigilant over the spring recess to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We encourage all members of the GGUSD community to continue to monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 and to stay home and test if any symptoms develop.

In recent weeks, GGUSD schools have distributed at-home COVID-19 test kits to all students and staff. Click here for details about using the test kits.

As a reminder, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must stay home for at least 5 days. Isolation can end after day 5 if symptoms are not present or are resolving and a negative test is collected on day 5 or later or isolation can end after day 10 without a negative test. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 should not return to school/work until at least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without fever-reducing medication, and other symptoms improving, and they have a negative COVID-19 test or a doctor’s note confirming an alternative diagnosis.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our schools safe. We wish you a happy and healthy Spring Recess!

  • Governor Newsom declared a Stay at Home executive order effective March 19, mandating individuals across the state to, except for essential services, remain in their homes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Click here for the details.
