We've updated this page effective July 30, 2021 with the latest COVID-19 updates for the 2021-2022 school year.
Fresno Diocese schools will comply with the California Department of Public Health's most recent orders for K-12 schools, issued July 12th. Contrary to some media reports, public and private school districts do not have discretion regarding adherence to or enforcement of these public health mandates.
Until further notice, the State is requiring that all Preschool and K-12 students must wear masks indoors on school campuses. Adults in preschool and K-12 settings must also wear masks when sharing indoor spaces with students, even if vaccinated. Masks are optional outdoors for all students and staff.
Students may wear any color masks, including those with prints or designs, so long as not scary, vulgar or otherwise inappropriate. Students are responsible for bringing their own cloth or disposable face coverings every school day.
At this time, we do not know. We expect CDPH to review its K-12 orders in November 2021. The Fresno Diocese plans to update its guidelines consistent with any new State policies.
