UPDATE POLICY AS OF 4/28/21 --

Use of face coverings for STUDENTS and STAFF will be optional during the following activities:
  • Outdoor Physical Education classes
  • Outdoor recess
  • Outdoor lunch breaks (beyond when students are not eating)

Use of face coverings for STAFF will be optional during the following activities:

Please note that face coverings are still required for all community members during pick up, drop off, and during class transition times when students may be walking outside. Also, face coverings will continue to be required inside campus buildings until further notice.

These decisions were made due to the improved COVID metrics and concerns regarding the health of students and staff wearing a mask outside as the weather becomes hot.

Face coverings MUST:
  • Fully cover a person’s nose and mouth
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the wide of the face and under the chin.
  • Remain affixed in place without the use of one’s hands.
  • Not have holes except for band-style masks when actively playing an instrument.
  • Not be face shields. However, face shields may be used in addition to face covering.
