MHHS/RVSD Health and Safety Handbooks
The goal of Ross Valley School District is to ensure a safe return to school for all students and staff. We are implementing preventive safety measures, including regular cleaning and disinfecting of common spaces, restrooms, and frequently touched surfaces throughout our schools, maintaining social distancing in classrooms, and requiring frequent handwashing for students and staff based on guidance from the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE), Marin County Health and Human Services (MCHHS), California Department of Education (CDE), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Marin Health and Human Services and the Ross Valley School District have developed a COVID-19 Student & Family Handbook to provide information about and to support the health and safety of all RVSD students and families. Parents/Guardians of students who participate in on-site instruction will be asked to acknowledge receipt and review of the Handbook by completing the pledge. As the Handbook is revised based on the County Tier assignment, it will be emailed to all staff and families.
We value and appreciate the support and cooperation of our entire school community to keep our students, staff, and families health and safe as well as to keep our schools open!
