Effective Friday, June 11, use of face coverings will be optional both indoors and outdoors on the Horizon Honors campus. Students enrolled in Club Horizon or participating in athletic activities over the summer will not be required to wear a face covering on campus. In addition, face coverings will not be required for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. 

Face coverings will continue to be required for all community members on the Horizon Honors campus until the end of this school year (Wednesday, June 9) and at all on-campus and off-campus Horizon Honors High School Graduation events (Thursday, June 10) except during the following activities:

  • Outdoor Physical Education classes
  • Outdoor recess
  • Outdoor lunch breaks (beyond when students are not eating)
  • Outdoor staff duties when not in close proximity to other community members (Ex: traffic duty)
