Marin County Public Health continues to work in close partnership with Marin County Office of Education and leaders of our public, private, parochial and independent schools to prepare for and facilitate the eventual reopening of K-12 schools for in-person instruction.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) acknowledged in a news release its approval of most of CDC’s recommendations for full in-classroom instruction in the fall. California’s plan emphasizes the use of face coverings and robust testing, but not physical distancing if it presents barriers to in-person instruction. Masks will be required for all students and staff in K-12 indoor settings state-wide, regardless of vaccination status. Marin is aligned with CDPH’s regulations.


Reopening Guidance for All Schools

As of September 29, 2020, K-12 schools that completed a School Site Specific Protection Plan were permitted to open. The decision and timing of when to open rests with each school and school district, and schools are not required to open if not ready.

Guidance Documents

Student & Family Resources

Marin County Public Health intends to create a new handbook to reflect the new “Beyond the Blueprint” phase of California’s reopening and is awaiting further clarification and guidance from both the California Department of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  New school and parent guidelines are expected to be available this Fall before the start of the new school year.
