COVID-19 Information and Guidance

Pathways is a public school and therefore governed by health orders from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Cal-OSHA as it relates to our employees and students. We understand there is sometimes conflicting and confusing information distributed by the CDC, the CDPH, and the various county public health departments. However, Pathways must operate under the directives of the CDPH and Cal-OSHA.

This page is monitored and updated frequently. If you have questions, reach out to your regional center manager or your local county health department.

 

Statement on Community-Oriented Approach

Throughout the course of the pandemic, schools have worked closely with their state and county public health departments, as well as their communities to slow the spread and keep students and staff safe. As we enter the endemic phase of COVID, we are transitioning to a community-oriented approach. What that means is that public health departments and schools are now heavily relying on community members to play a larger role. Some of the shifts you will begin to see are:

      • Families are expected to take a greater role in at-home testing and reporting positive and negative return to school results to the school 
      • Families are expected to take responsibility for masking as appropriate 
      • Families are expected to take a greater role in notifying schools of illness(es) that would keep their students home
      • You have a responsibility to self-notify the schools and close contacts if you or anyone in your household tests positive

Masking Guidance
 
Facemasks

Effective March 14, universal masking requirements will move from a requirement to a strong recommendation for all persons on Pathways campuses. However, anyone who wants to continue wearing their mask is welcome to do so. Additionally, we will still have masks available for those who wish to access them.
