We will continue to require masks on campus.
Please note that CCSD is not allowing neck scarves, bandanas, gaiters, and masks with exhalation valves or vents.
To reduce the spread of the Covid-19 during the pandemic, CCSMS will require face masks on campus. This is to be effective until further notice and will align with or supersede CCSMS and district policies, including, but not limited to, scholar dress codes related to face coverings.
The school may amend these requirements as necessary to meet health and safety guidelines.
A face covering is a piece of fabric, cloth, or other material that covers the wearer’s nose, mouth, and chin simultaneously and is secured to the wearer’s face by elastic, ties, or other means. Acceptable face coverings may be homemade, and they may be reusable or disposable.
Not Acceptable: Neck scarves, bandanas, gaiters and masks with exhalation valves or vents are not allowed on campus.
All scholars will wear face coverings while on CCSMS and CCSD district property, on CCSMS transportation, or attending a school related activity (e.g. athletic events, field trips, etc.). Certain classes or activities may be granted a limited exception to this requirement at the discretion of the CCSMS administration.
If scholars need a disposable mask for the day one will be provided prior to boarding the bus or coming into the building.
Exceptions for wearing a face covering (both faculty and students) may include, but are not limited to, the following activities:
- outdoor recess where students can maintain a physical distance of at least six (6) feet
- administration of medication
- planned and socially distanced mask breaks
Requests for exceptions under this policy for health or developmental conditions or religious exemption will be considered by the superintendent or his/her designee, who may request documentation justifying the exception. The wearing of a face shield or other PPE may be required.
Students (or parents/legal guardians) who request to be exempted from wearing a face covering for other than a health or developmental condition or religious exemption will be offered virtual learning for the period that face coverings are required on district property.
Harassment and Bullying
CCSMS will not tolerate harassment of anyone wearing face coverings or those with recognized exemptions to the face covering requirement and will appropriately discipline students, staff, or visitors who engage in behavior that interferes with any student or staff member’s ability to comply with this policy.
Failure or refusal to wear a face covering by a staff member or student may result in discipline in accordance with CCSMS and district policy and codes of conduct, as applicable.
