Since the early days of COVID, PUSD has had to pivot and adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. 
At last week's meeting, the Pasadena Unified Board of Education approved 
revisions to COVID safety protocols. 

The following revisions are now in place at all PUSD schools. 

Outdoor in-person meetings/activities with parents/guardians, community members, staff, 
and students are now allowed with masking strongly recommended. 

Indoor in-person meetings/group activities with parents/guardians, community members, 
staff, students are allowed with masking required for all. 

• Masks are strongly recommended for students and staff indoors in classrooms and 
other shared spaces. 
• Parent group meetings such as (PTA, SSC, ELAC, AAPC) are allowed in person and 
may be held outdoors or remotely if the respective parent leadership agree. 
• IEP meetings with parents/guardians may be held in-person or remotely, whichever 
supports greater parent/guardian participation. 
• Back to School nights will proceed as planned with masks required for all. 
Visitors and volunteers are allowed on campus if they self-attest to being fully vaccinated or 
to having a negative COVID test within the past 48 hours. They must also conduct a symptom 
screening prior to entering campus and masking is required. All visitors and volunteers 
must abide by Board policies, regulations, and school rules. Board Policy - Visitors BP 1250. 

Back-to-School Nights will be allowed in-person with mandatory masking. 

The following protocols remain in place: 

Masks are strongly recommended for students and employees in classrooms and indoors. 

Masks are required in larger group activities such as assemblies. 

Masks are required: 

• on PUSD buses (with accommodations for students) 

• at testing and vaccination clinics 
• during field trips when required by the venue 
• for 10 days after exposure to COVID-19 and after a positive test result 
Reentry Testing Before arriving for the first day of school, PUSD is asking every student and 
employee to take an at-home rapid antigen test on August 10 or 11. Parents/guardians can 
pick up rapid antigen test kits (containing 2 tests) at their child’s school/children’s center 
August 8-10. More information 

Rapid Antigen Tests The California Department of Public Health has endorsed the emergency 
use of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests beyond their FDA authorized expiration. 
Please follow instructions carefully. If a distinct line in the color specified in the instructions 
does not appear in the “C” control window, the test may be invalid. 

Vaccine Clinics Getting vaccinated and boosted is still the best way to slow the spread of 
COVID-19 to prevent serious illness, hospitalization, and death. PUSD is holding vaccination 
clinics for ages 3 and older at the PUSD Primary Clinic (351 S. Hudson Ave., Pasadena) 

• Tuesday, August 9, 2022, 1:00-2:45 pm
