Updated COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

The Roseville Joint Union High School District continues to evaluate and monitor the impacts of COVID-19 and the implementation of evolving mitigation strategies. With low case rates across our campuses and to ensure we limit any restriction to learning in-person, we are providing new guidance for students experiencing illness, close contact exposure, and testing.  We appreciate your patience as we progress through the challenges presented by COVID-19 and intend this update to further support our students’ academic success.  


Updated COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

(Positive Cases, Close Contacts, and Testing)

Recommendations for staying home when sick with symptoms similar to COVID-19 :

  • Students/families should self-screen for signs or symptoms of COVID-19 prior to coming to school each day. 
  • If students or staff exhibit signs or symptoms of COVID-19, it is advised that they not return for in-person instruction until they have met the below criteria to return to school:
    • At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; and
    • Other symptoms have improved; OR
    • They have a negative test for SARS-CoV-2, or
    • A healthcare provider has provided documentation that the symptoms are typical of their underlying chronic condition, or
    • Has confirmed an alternative named diagnosis (e.g., Streptococcal pharyngitis, Coxsackie virus)

If a student is a close contact:

  • Parents will be notified
  • Remain at school and self-monitor for symptoms
  • If symptoms develop after exposure, contact your healthcare provider or school nurse

                   o    Remain at home and self-monitor

                   o    Recommend a SARS-CoV-2 Test

                   o    If not positive with COVID-19 or symptoms are from an underlying condition, a student may return after 24 hours without a fever and other symptoms have improved.

If a student is diagnosed with COVID-19:

  • Immediately Isolate at home and do not come to school
  • Contact your healthcare provider or school nurse
  • Can return to school if  the following criteria are met:
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptom onset; AND
    • At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; AND
    • Other symptoms have improved

Testing Options (Not Required):

  • While all district staff are required to be fully vaccinated or undergo weekly testing, students are NOT required to undergo any testing.  Testing is NOT required of district students for daily attendance, participation in extracurricular activities, or any school based activities.
  • Testing is available at all school sites throughout the week as an option for those choosing to take advantage of testing options.  Both standard lower nasal swab PCR testing and saliva based PCR testing is available.
