Vaccination is a powerful tool to protect employees and students. In 2021, the San Marino Unified School District partnered with Keck Medicine of USC to develop a COVID-19 vaccination plan for employees. SMUSD staff and students are encouraged to be fully vaccinated. SMUSD has also partnered with Albertsons to host on-site vaccination clinics.
Vaccines are Now Widely Available to all Ages 5 and Up
State Public Health Order Rescinded: Unvaccinated School Workers No Longer Tested Weekly
Effective September 17, 2022, the State Public Health Order requiring all School Workers who are not fully vaccinated to be tested weekly has been rescinded. Prior to the rescinded health order, all SMUSD workers, including volunteers, provided proof of vaccination or had to be tested weekly. SMUSD Employees uploaded vaccination proof through the Helios system (Instructions
). Volunteers (or any “school worker”) must also provide proof of vaccination and may do so through the Privit system (instructions here
). Unvaccinated employees or volunteers must test weekly and should register at http://smusd.info/test
The SMUSD's COVID-19 vaccination plan included providing the Pfizer vaccine to all SMUSD teachers, staff, substitutes, and eligible educators among neighboring private schools, the San Marino Chinese School, and Right At School programs. The second Pfizer shot was administered March 26-27, 2021.
