Current Mask Guidance

In accordance with California Department of Public Health guidance, masks are strongly recommended but not required indoors on school campuses beginning Monday, March 14.

We encourage all GGUSD families to have conversations with your child(ren) about the importance of respecting the individual choices of their classmates as the district transitions to masks being strongly recommended but not required. Please encourage your students not to make assumptions or judgements about other students and not to make negative comments about students’ personal decisions about wearing a mask/not wearing a mask. Whether or not students hold differing views on mask wearing, we can all be united in our actions to treat each other with kindness. These conversations about the power of words and the need for respect are more important than ever.

As always, students and staff should continue to remain home when sick and are encouraged to take a test if they have symptoms or have a known exposure to COVID-19. GGUSD encourages students and families to practice frequent hand washing, cover their mouth when coughing, and report any symptoms or positive cases of COVID-19 to our school office as we continue to track all cases. Additionally, GGUSD schools will continue to utilize stringent cleaning and disinfecting practices as well as upgraded hvac systems that maximize the circulation of fresh outdoor air.
