Community Facility Rentals
Current Status of Facility Use
Current Status of High School Athletics, MUSD Facilities, Youth Sports, and Other Organized Activities Utilizing MUSD Facilities:
It is encouraging to see our Nation, State, and local community start down the path of re-opening, but we must stay diligent as a community to remain on that path. With the phased opening of schools by Governor Newsom, we look forward to San Joaquin County Public Health allowing districts to resume athletic practices and contest based on State guidelines. Until that time, we will be abiding by the provisional starting of sports by allowing MUSD high school teams activities effective June 15, 2020 based on the current Public Health Order with the following protocols:
- Team activities must be conditioning, and skill based only.
- No equipment may be used.
- All activities must be done outside.
- Social distancing will be followed where practical and possible.
- Athletes are to come dressed for the activities. No locker rooms will be available at this time.
- Athletes must not be in groups greater than 25 per coach.
Additionally, we look forward to receiving determinations from San Joaquin County Public Health Services and the California Interscholastic Federation regarding sports that can be safely played this fall.
Under the Civic Center Act, and in accordance with Board Policy 1330, any activities beyond casual use (which includes athletic practices or organized competitions of any kind) requires written authorization through an MUSD Facilities Use Agreement. MUSD is not currently issuing outside Facilities Use Agreements due to COVID-19 and therefore remains closed to youth sports organizations until further notice. The California Public Health department has not provided guidance on youth sports re-opening. Additionally, the Stay-at-home order has not re-opened youth sports organizations. Therefore, no practices or organized activities should be occurring on MUSD facilities.
Further guidance will be provided as we work within our State and County health guidelines.
Use of MUSD Facilities
Manteca USD recognizes that school facilities are primarily intended for the education of the children of the District. However, school facilities may be used by residents of the community for the purposes set forth in the California Education Code, provided that such use does not interfere with or restrict the educational program of the District.
