Mask-Wearing Guidance

Given the improving conditions in our community and the demonstrated protections afforded by vaccination and individual masking, we will be ending our mask requirement as of March 8, 2022.

We support any family that chooses to continue to mask. Masks will still be required on buses per federal mandate and for early return from quarantine. We also reserve the right to implement a mask mandate again in the future and to implement temporary masking for classrooms or schools if there are outbreaks. If conditions necessitate it, we will use masks to keep students learning in person and to avoid burdening families with child care challenges due to quarantines when case rates increase in schools.

We will continue to keep a wide range of prevention strategies in place including physical distancing where possible, providing free access to antigen and PCR testing, improved ventilation, promotion of hand washing and respiratory etiquette, requiring students to stay home and get tested when sick, contact tracing for high-risk contacts and quarantining for positive cases.

Thank you for your flexibility, patience, and understanding as we continue to adjust to the changing conditions in this pandemic.
