  • Face Masks

    Currently, face masks are optional for students and for staff.
    The Board of Education approved the Face Coverings policy (Policy 4231/5021/7263) on November 8, 2021, and it defines parameters that determine whether face masks are required or optional. Face masks will be required whenever the COVID positivity rate for students and staff exceeds 0.5 percent within a three-week rolling average. The status of face masks will be announced on Fridays for the following week.

    Face Coverings on buses and other school transportation are required per federal mandate.
