Mask/Face Covering guidance while on AVA property
We are all working hard to ensure every reasonable health and safety measure is followed to keep AVA open to in-person learning and allow our students to come to school. As we are seeing large spikes in people testing positive for COVID-19, we must be extra vigilant to keep everyone safe.
We have identified an area where we can up our game in order to be safer. During carpool we are seeing groups of parents/guardians gathering and interacting without masks or face shields. We completely understand the desire to socialize and we know social distancing is tough during carpool, but we can improve safety and health by wearing a face covering.
We are asking parents/guardians to please wear a face covering while on AVA property during arrival and dismissal. There is no requirement to wear a mask or face shield while in your vehicle.
Thank you for your assistance with this as we try to keep AVA open to in-person learning as long as the safety and health data show it is safe to do so.
