Any changes to our plan and protocols will be communicated ahead of time through the newsletter, website, email, and text alerts.
Please note: Central Valley Public Schools will adjust protocols (including face covering requirements) as necessary to address changing conditions. During the 2021-2022 school year, protocols and requirements may change for a specific school building, program, classroom or setting based on number of positive cases, contact tracing, community test positivity rate, community conditions and risk of spread.
The Central Valley Public Schools 2021-2022 Safe Return Plan was last revised and reviewed on July 12, 2021 at the Central Valley Board of Education Meeting.
