Athletic Team Carpooling - COVID Guidance and Protocols from AUHSD

As a reminder, in order to transport students to and from events, you must fill out the volunteer personal automobile form (linked here).

If you volunteer to transport students to and from athletic events, you are agreeing to transport students regardless of vaccination status and it is inappropriate for parent volunteers to inquire regarding the vaccination status of the athletes that they are transporting. Everyone within the car, including the parent volunteer, must wear a mask for the entirety of the time in the car - this is in accordance with CDPH requirements that all schools require indoor masking. It is recommended that windows be down when possible.

We understand that during this difficult time, you may not feel comfortable volunteering to drive our students. We respect your decision and we thank those of you who continue to transport our kids.
