Reduce Your Risk: Schools 

With the 2021-2022 academic year underway for the majority of schools across Marin, parents may be concerned about keeping their students protected against COVID-19 and how to ensure a safe learning environment. There are steps parents and students can take to reduce the risk of transmission and to keep the focus of this school year on learning. 

  • The first and most important measure that families can take is to have everyone in the household who is 12 or older receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated remains the greatest defense we have against COVID-19 and the Delta variant.  
  • Update your student’s school supplies with a toolkit for staying safe. This can include hand sanitizer, extra face masks & tissues which are all lightweight and easy to store in backpacks.  
  • Encourage mask wearing while in indoor public settings and even outdoor spaces where social distancing is not easily obtained. By getting comfortable with the use of masks outside of school, putting them on in a classroom becomes an easier practice.  
  • On campus, students should wear masks at all times when indoors, and are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings outdoors, too.    
  • Students should practice social distancing awareness while in the school hallway or in areas where large groups congregate.  
  • Exercising proper hand-washing etiquette is a simple and effective strategy for personal cleanliness and defense against possible COVID-19 transmission. Staying clean before, during, and after school activities is an essential priority.  
  • Adhere to school policies and be mindful of other student’s feelings or experience with COVID-19. 
  • Keep a positive attitude and remember that everyone is dealing with the challenging of staying safe against COVID-19.  

The complete Marin County School COVID-19 Guidelines are available on the MCOE webpage for those who are interested in learning about current policies being implemented in Marin’s K-12 academic settings. For additional information regarding schools, please visit our Schools webpage or the MCOE Rethinking Schools page
