COVID-19 Information for EVSD Schools

Masking Requirements

  • All staff, students, visitors, and volunteers must wear face coverings/masks, regardless of vaccination status when in all East Valley School District buildings or on buses.

Physical Distancing Requirements

  • Maintain a physical distance of three feet between students in classroom settings as is reasonably possible. There is flexibility in reducing the distance when desks or tables do not allow for the three feet distance.
  • All district staff must maintain a 6-foot separation and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace. 

Additional Prevention Measures

  • Frequent hand washing is encouraged
  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the buildings
  • Cleaning and disinfecting 
  • Staying home when sick
  • Testing as indicated

Our Custodial Team is routinely cleaning and disinfecting the workplace, especially in those commonly touched surfaces/areas. Our Health Services Team will continue to monitor COVID testing, symptoms, cases, contact tracing, and quarantining as required by the Department of Health.
