Starting on Monday, March 21, Oakland students and school staff will have the option of not wearing masks while outdoors.
Masks will still be required indoors for now. OUSD has stated that they will decide after April 15, 2022.
Spring break starts at the end of March and through the first week of April. The district states that at-home COVID test kits will be available at schools for students or parents to pick up:
“At-home test kits will be available for all students and staff by the last week of March for pickup at their school or office. Each kit contains two tests. Please use these during the break, on the Friday and Sunday before returning to school. We encourage families to sign up for another distribution of test kits from the federal government at covidtests.gov, particularly if you are planning to travel or gather in large groups over break.”
