Bassett Unified School District COVID-19 Dashboard

Greetings Bassett Unified School District Community!


As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, the district would like to share some updates on COVID-19 before students return to school.  Below you will find the most current information regarding COVID-19 as it relates to students returning to school on Monday, August 15, 2022.  The district’s goal is to provide up-to-date information to keep your children safe throughout the school year. As guidelines and mandates continue to change, the district will send out new notices.



Currently there are no indoor mask mandates and students will not be required to wear masks indoors.  However, the Los Angeles County Public Health strongly recommends masks be worn while indoors and at crowded outdoor events, regardless of vaccination status.  In line with the Los Angeles County Public Health Office, the district strongly recommends students wear masks while indoors at school. 


Please note there are times when masks must be worn.  For example: 

  1. When a student tests positive for COVID-19.  Isolation may end after day 5 if a negative COVID-19 test is received.  Mask must be worn until day 10. 
  2. When student has been exposed to COVID-19.  If they have no symptoms and have a negative COVID-19 test, mask must be work until day 10.

The following is a Dashboard of laboratory confirmed COVID-19 positive cases among staff and students on-site at schools on a rolling-10 day period. The Dashboard will be updated weekly. All required steps have been taken relative to these cases per the LA County Department of Public Health's guidelines as well as the District's protocol. 
Bassett Unified School District and our schools are committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff. The data above represents the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases among district students and staff on our campuses (in-person instruction only). A confirmed case indicates that a student or staff member who was participating in on-site activities has tested positive for an active COVID-19 infection. This data will be updated regularly as cases are confirmed. In the event of a positive case, school communities will be notified directly by school principals.

Communication in the Event of Positive COVID-19 Cases

In the event of a laboratory confirmed case, staff and parents of students will receive a COVID-19 General Notification letter. This letter will serve to inform the school community of the confirmed case while providing additional guidance on actions that will help us to collectively slow the the spread of COVID-19. When a COVID-19 case is confirmed, contact tracing will be conducted to ensure that all close contacts are notified.

COVID-19 Reporting Instructions for Families

If your child is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 - or has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 - it must be reported to your school office. Please call the office to speak directly with your child's principal. The principal will provide you with the next steps, based on guidance from the Department of Public Health's protocol for K-12 schools.
