COVID-19 and Facility Use Information

This is an unprecedented time we are facing as individuals and as a worldwide community.  Health and safety are our utmost concern for our students, employees, community, and facility users.  As Ventura County COVID conditions have improved, CVUSD indoor facilities are now open and available for rent.  On November 15, the portal will open for reservations for January 1, 2022 through June 30, 2022 on a first come first served basis.  Please note that the Board of Education recently reviewed the facility use program and adopted an updated fee schedule, rules and regulations, and a COVID addendum and related fee(s).  Please review the fee schedule, rules and regulations, and COVID addendum that outline user responsibilities.  Please print out your reservation and have it ready to present to any CVUSD staff member that requests it.

Updated CDPH Guidance for Indoor Users - Monday, November 29, 2021

The requirements and recommendations in this guidance apply to all extracurricular activities that are operated or supervised by schools, and all activities that occur on a school site, whether or not they occur during school hours, including, but not limited to, sports, band, chorus, and clubs.

 

Activities may be performed outdoors without masks. Indoor mask use remains a critical layer in protecting against COVID-19 infection and transmission, including during sports, music, and related activities. Accordingly:

-Masks are required indoors at all times for teachers, referees, officials, coaches, and other support staff.
-Masks are required indoors for all spectators and observers.
-Masks are required indoors at all times when participants are not actively practicing, conditioning, competing, or performing. Masks are also required indoors while on the sidelines, in team meetings, and within locker rooms and weight rooms.
-When actively practicing, conditioning, or competing in indoor sports, masks are required by participants even during heavy exertion, as practicable. If masks are not worn due to heavy exertion, it is strongly recommended that individuals undergo screening testing at least once weekly. An FDA-approved antigen test, PCR test, or pooled PCR test is acceptable for evaluation of an individual's COVID-19 status.
-Individuals using instruments indoors that cannot be played with a mask (e.g., wind instruments) may perform if bell coverings are used when playing wind instruments AND a minimum of 3 feet of physical distancing is maintained between participants. Modified masking may be considered in addition to, but not in place of, bell covers. If bell covers are not used, it is strongly recommended that individuals undergo screening testing at least once weekly. An FDA-approved antigen test, PCR test, or pooled PCR test is acceptable for evaluation of an individual's COVID-19 status.

 
Updated Facility Use Guidance - Wednesday, November 03, 2021

The Conejo Valley Unified School District appreciates your interest in utilizing District facilities. In an effort to create equity and clarity on facility use, the Board of Education has reviewed the facilities use program and has adopted updated rules and regulations, tier descriptions, a new fee schedule (revised on November 2, 2021), and an updated COVID addendum (see left column for more information). The new guidelines and fees structure are effective immediately.  Reservations submitted prior to November 1 remain valid and as quoted. 

Notable changes are:

 -  Revised fee schedule with a delayed implementation for field use costs
 -  Discounted rate between “practice” and “game or event”
 -  Creation of two cycles for reservations; July 1 to December 30 (reservation portal to open on May 15) and January 1 to June 30 (reservation portal to open on November 15).
 -  Cancellation charges
 -  2-hour minimum requirement for all rentals

For more detailed information, click on the link to September 21 BOE meeting here and the follow up discussion at the November 2 BOE meeting here where the Board of Education delayed the fee increases for fields in response to and in support of local youth sports groups. 

Additional information:

An authorized representative must print or save your permit and QR code for reservations. District staff will be checking permits and enforcing authorized use.

Any user group that has keys to any District facility, gate, lock etc. are to return the keys to the Business Office at 750 Mitchell Road, Newbury Park as soon as possible and not later than November 1. User groups that fail to return keys and access District facilities with them, shall lose facility rental privileges.

User groups that perform maintenance on District property, i.e. fields, must set up a meeting with the District (email here) no later than November 1, 2021 to review regulations and sign an agreement permitting maintenance within specified parameters.

Sincerely,
CVUSD and the Facilitron Team
