COVID-19 Information

Back to School 2021-22

As our families prepare for the fall semester, we want to share information that impacts our schools and daily interactions on our campuses.

 

Updated CDC Guidance - July 27, 2021

The CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place.


  • Promoting vaccination to help schools safely return to in-person learning as well as extracurricular activities and sports.

  • Wearing masks indoors by all individuals (age 2 and older).

  • Practicing physical distancing in schools where not everyone is vaccinated.

  • Students should not be excluded from in-person learning to maintain physical distancing. 

 

New State Law: Mask and Vaccinations, retroactive to July 1, 2021:

  • Prohibits requiring students or staff to use face coverings during school hours and on school property.

  • Prohibits school districts or charter schools from requiring that a student or teacher receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Prohibits requiring wearing a face covering to participate in in-person instruction. 

Here is a link to the July 27th updated CDC recommended guidelines in schools: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/k-12-guidance.html


Tanque Verde Pediatrics Recommendation

Included in the discussion was a letter from Tanque Verde Pediatrics with their recommendations for mask wearing in schools, based on the updated CDC Guidance issued on July 27, 2021.



TVUSD School COVID-19 Dashboard

  • The purpose of the data included in this dashboard is to provide a transparent summary of active, reported, positive COVID-19 cases by school. An active case can be a student or staff member that has been participating in on-campus activities and has tested positive for COVID-19. Upon notification of a positive case, extensive procedures and protocols are immediately actioned by our district and campuses including exclusion from participation in any in-person/on-campus activity until the registered nurse verifies that the individual meets the return criteria set by state and local health authorities. Once an individual is cleared to return to campus they are no longer considered an active case and their case is removed from the dashboard count. 


  • Please note, Tanque Verde Unified School District is following the Pima County Department of Health guidelines with regard to notifying employees and student families of positive COVID-19 cases.  



    1. Parent Notifications of Positive Case

      Tanque Verde Unified School District continues to follow Pima County Health guidelines and reports all confirmed cases on a school site.  


      The process for parent/guardian notification is as follows:

      1. Possible exposure notifications will be sent to all staff, parents/guardians of students in a school with a reported positive case.


                      2. Following county investigation, parents/guardians of students required to quarantine will receive a letter and a phone call.
                

    TVUSD makes COVID-19 notifications of confirmed cases when they fall under the following definitions:

                A confirmed case on a school site is defined as:

    • Person who was on campus within 48 hours of developing symptoms and is then confirmed with a positive test.

    • Person who was on campus within 48 hours of a positive test without symptoms.



  1.  Disclaimer: All COVID-19 data shared by Tanque Verde Unified School District (TVUSD) is for informational purposes only. This information is based on reports to the district from other sources which have not been independently verified. TVUSD confers with Pima County Health Department to track COVID-19 cases and trace close contacts.
