COVID 19 Safety Plan
Fall Semester 2021
Posted August 8, 2021
Updated March 14, 2022 - mask mandate lifted
The UHS COVID-19 Task Force adheres to the most up-to-date guidance and directives from the California and San Francisco Department of Health and other agencies to create this comprehensive safety plan for our campus and community. We use our core values to align our decision-making and our policies and procedures in ways that adhere to state, county, and city regulations and support our entire community.
Throughout the pandemic, UHS has and will continue to place health and wellness at the center of our planning. We appreciate that while we cannot eliminate risk, we can mitigate it by creating a set of shared community practices and protocols.
Creating the most effective and positive environment for our students and teachers within this ever-changing context may require modifying our plan as the school year continues.
During the 2021-2022 school year, our campus is open at 100% capacity with all students, faculty, and staff in-person and on-campus for daily teaching, learning, as well as co- and extracurricular and administrative activities.
We have developed a daily schedule that is very similar to our pre-pandemic schedule and that allows for two lunch periods and all-school gatherings to take place in smaller groups.
We will not be offering any individual remote/distance learning option for students. Please refer to the Student/Family Handbook for non-COVID-related information regarding remote learning.

VISITORS TO CAMPUS
Effective Monday, March 14, masks are recommended but not required for all students, staff, and visitors (with proof of vaccination or recent negative test) on our campus.
We also expect that UHS community members who are not feeling well, or who are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms – even when testing negative – will mask out of courtesy, respect for others, and as a common-sense health practice.
