Visalia Unified high schools are planning a modified return to extracurricular activities on July 1, 2020. VUSD will follow state and local health guidelines to implement the return of extracurricular programs with group participant limits and social distancing.
VUSD athletics, visual and performing arts, and other student group activities will begin with limited group participation and social distancing. Athletic conditioning activities are optional and will not be mandated or a prerequisite for participation in athletics.
Each day, prior to beginning the activity, VUSD students, coaches, and staff will take part in pre-participation health screenings. Any person with symptoms, including a temperature over 100°F, will not be allowed to take part in the activity.
In addition to health screenings, VUSD custodial staff will be implementing cleaning schedules within the facilities where these activities will take place. For example, prior to an individual or group of individuals entering a facility, hard surfaces within that facility will be wiped down and sanitized.
As Tulare County transitions in or out of various stages, Visalia Unified will adjust the guidance provided to extracurricular teams and groups. For more information on Visalia Unified School District’s extracurricular activities during COVID-19 reopening, please contact VUSD at (559) 730-7300.
