This is a reminder that the emergency face mask policy passed by the school board last month is still in effect.
The policy makes wearing a face mask mandatory while on school board property, including schools and school transportation.
Important Information to Remember:
Each Pre-K-12 student, employee, visitor, vendor, or other person is required to wear a face covering at all times while indoors on school district property.
A child younger than two years old and a person with a medical certification are not required to have a face covering. Medical Certification: A face covering shall not be required for persons who present school district staff with a certification from a licensed health care provider that the person has a medical, physical, or psychological contraindication that prevents the person from being able to safely wear a face covering.
Other times a face covering is not required: students with supervisor’s approval, eating and drinking, strenuous physical activity, receiving health care, exigent circumstances.
A face covering IS NOT needed if a student or adult is outside.
The mask mandate will reduce quarantines of students and staff, based on CDC guidelines.
We have seen a decline in quarantines since the mask mandate was put into place on August 30th.
The mask mandate, along with our other COVID-19 mitigation efforts, will allow your school staff to remain focused on the number one priority, educating your child.
