Personal Protective Equipment*

Maricopa Unified School District’s Goal is to:

    • Promote student behaviors that stop the spread of COVID-19. 
    • Keep students and staff safe.

Face Coverings

  • CDC Guidelines

    Use of simple cloth face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms.

    • Teach and reinforce use of cloth face coverings.
    • Face coverings may be challenging for students (especially younger students) to wear.
    • Face coverings should be worn by staff and students (particularly older students) as feasible, and are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult.

    MUSD Practices

    • Teachers will be provided with cloth face coverings.
    • Teach and reinforce use of cloth face coverings. 
    • Students will be required to wear a mask when in the hallways, in communal areas, on the bus, and entering and exiting the school. 
    • Cloth masks do not need to be worn in the classroom if social distancing is in place. 
    • Cloth masks will not be worn during recess or any physical activity. 
    • Students or teachers that have respiratory issues are not required to wear masks. 
    • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on children younger than two years old.
    • Students will be provided with a mask if they do not have one. 

Infection Control Box

  • MUSD Practices

    Each classroom will have an Infection Control Box which will include items in order to maintain a clean and safe classroom. 

    Items in this box are:

    • Hand sanitizer        
    • Aerosol spray disinfectant 
    • Alcohol wipes 
    • Gloves 
    • Masks 

    Teachers will receive instructions about how and when to use each item provided. Health Office Staff will be available to answer any questions.
