Grossmont Union High School District

The California Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools to Support Safe In-Person Learning for the 2022-2023 School Year is guided by the “principle that safe, in-person learning is critical to student well-being and development.”
That same principle has guided the Grossmont Union High School District since it opened for in-person instruction in September 2020, and it continues to do so today. 
As we work closely with state and local public health agencies, and continue to follow all public health guidelines, GUHSD is firmly committed to providing safe in-person and Independent Study options for our students.
Important information for understanding the dashboard:
  • The dashboard summarizes the total number of “active” student and staff COVID-19 cases reported by GUHSD’s school sites.
  • An “active” case is defined as an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 less than 14 days ago. 
  • Being listed as a positive case in the dashboard does not necessarily mean the individual contracted the virus at their school site.
  • As soon as GUHSD is informed of a student or staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19, our staff works closely with San Diego County’s public health department to assist them with their contact tracing effort, follows all State and Local public health orders, uses the recommendations in the San Diego County Office of Education’s decision tree as a resource for how to address the unique situation, and informs members of our school community who may have been in “close contact” with the individual who tested positive.
