New Mask Guidance for Students and Staff as of June 8, 2021
As you are aware, the Governor’s Office has issued much conflicting information over the last several days regarding wearing of masks within schools. They have affirmed that districts have local control to lift mask wearing during outside activities, but for now have upheld the requirement for masks to be worn during the school day with mask breaks allowable at the discretion of the teachers. As you know, for several weeks, we have authorized students to have mask breaks outside.
Since the CDC has ruled for now that mask mandates must be maintained, we will resume our mask mandate for students and staff effective Tuesday, June 8th.
We will continue to monitor the guidance and will continue to advocate for our families moving forward.
