Update 1/6/22:  Please read IUSD's Jan. 6 update to our December 30 communication, which includes information regarding COVID-19 testing resources, isolation periods, contact tracing, vaccine status, school safety and what our community can do to support these efforts.  

Update 12/30/21:  We hope our IUSD community is continuing to enjoy the winter break.  As we prepare for school to resume on Monday, January 3, please take a moment to review important health and safety updates and reminders by clicking here.   

Update 12/13/21:  The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced today that it will re-institute a statewide indoor mask mandate for all public places from December 15-January 15, 2022.  Please note, this does NOT change the state’s current masking requirements for TK-12 schools, including IUSD schools, which still require universal masking indoors.  We will keep our community informed as we have new information.
