COVID-19 Information and Updates


The Rowland Unified School District is committed to safely serving our students and staff. Below is a resource guide for the 2021-2022 school year which is aligned to the California Department of Public Health's guidelines for TK-12 schools. All students and staff are required to wear masks while indoors at school, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are no longer required outdoors.


RUSD will continue to implement health and safety mitigation measures, including thermal cameras to screen temperature, upgraded classroom ventilation, physical distancing with plexiglass dividers on students' desks and signage for traffic flow, hand sanitizer stations in all classrooms and common areas, and touchless water bottle filling stations. Below is further information about the health and safety measures implemented for the 2021-2022 school year. Thank you for taking the time to review this important information. Together, we can all do our part to help keep schools safe.
