2022-2023 COVID-19 Information » Home



For the 2022-2023 school year, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) will offer a traditional, full-time, on-campus learning model on all campuses. The district will also continue its use of current health and safety mitigation strategies to address COVID-19 on campuses, some of which include:
  • Standalone air purification units in classrooms, offices, and other spaces
  • Enhanced filtration throughout our facilities
  • Cleaning and disinfecting protocols
  • Extra handwashing and/or hand sanitizing stations on campuses
Masks are not required, but all students and staff have the option to wear one if they choose. Please see the updated California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines for schools for more information.



The district will continue to provide community notifications of confirmed positive COVID-19 cases on campuses through the COVID-19 Dashboard at www.pylusd.org/dashboard. The Dashboard is updated Monday through Friday but not on weekends, non-school days, or holidays. 


Stay Home When Sick


As a reminder, students and staff should stay home if they are sick. When students are sick or test positive for COVID-19, families should contact their school and share detailed symptom information and the date of onset. Families should reference the district's School Illness Guidelines, which have been developed to help determine when students need to stay home or go home from school.

When employees are sick, they should follow regular absence communication with school administration and through SmartFind, and contact Human Resources immediately so appropriate follow-up can be done. 

Test Kits


The district has COVID-19 test kits available for students and staff to pick up in front offices during regular business hours in the event that COVID-19 symptoms occur.


We are excited to have our volunteers back on campuses on a more regular basis this school year. As of September 17, the California Department of Public Health will no longer require volunteers to upload their vaccination status or provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before entering campus. You may read the full order here
If you plan on volunteering and working with students, we ask that you do not come to campus if you aren’t feeling well or have had COVID-19 within the past ten days.
