Learning and Staying Safe during the 2022-2023 School Year

Armstrong continues to make health and safety a priority for our entire community as we have learned to live with COVID. Armstrong follows guidance and recommendations from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), San Mateo County of Health and the CDC. This page includes resources and specific guidelines for positive cases and exposures as well contact information and latest updates about COVID policies at Armstrong. Key policies include:
  • Stay home if you are sick or have any symptoms.
  • Masking is optional for both indoor and outdoor spaces on campus, although still recommended indoors.
  • Test 3-5 days after an exposure or anytime you have symptoms. Rapid antigen testing may be used returning from school breaks and/or during any surges of cases in the community.
  • Report positive cases to Armstrong and follow isolation and testing guidance that is provided.
  • Doors and windows remain open for maximum ventilation along with air purifiers in each classroom.
  • Recommend everyone stay up to date with vaccines and boosters as they continue to provide the best individual protection against the risk of serious illness or death from COVID.
  • Practice good hand hygiene.
We appreciate continued individual and family-based responsibility and support for the entire community. Armstrong reserves the right to make changes to any COVID policy any time we think doing so is appropriate.
