What is the vaccination policy for students?
TCSOS highly encourages anyone who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated before school starts and is partnering with healthcare and community providers to make vaccines accessible and free for TCSOS families. Visit TCSOS’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage for the latest updates on COVID-19 vaccines.
Per state law, all students should also be up to date on all other vaccines required for school before attending. If the school does not yet have your child’s immunization record, or your child receives additional vaccinations, please bring the updated vaccination record to your child’s school. Information about health requirements for school is available on the TCSOS Immunization website.
What is the vaccination policy for staff and teachers?
TCSOS is requiring all staff to report their vaccination status. The district is actively promoting all eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated and is partnering with healthcare and community providers to make vaccines accessible and free for TCSOS staff and families. All school-based personnel who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 must test at least once weekly. Visit TCSOS’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage for the latest updates on COVID-19 vaccines.
Where can I request information about the vaccination rates or statistics about testing results for my student's school or classroom?
To protect the privacy and confidential health information of students and staff, TCSOS is unable to share detailed information about vaccination records. TCSOS is planning and implementing health and safety guidelines and enforcing COVID-19 mitigation strategies such as universal masking, improved ventilation, and surveillance testing based on the current public health context whereby children under 5 years old are unvaccinated.
When will TCSOS implement the statewide vaccination mandate?
The State mandate does not go into effect right away, and it is contingent on the COVID-19 vaccine receiving full FDA approval for anyone who is between ages 5-15.
Currently, all students attending TCSOS, per California state law, are required to be up to date on immunizations required by the Health and Safety Code and the CA Code of Regulations.
We will be working closely with the Tuolumne County Public Health Department to set up additional systems to verify student vaccination as we await more details from the State.
