Face Covering Clarification and Adjustment:

  • All students are asked to wear district issued face coverings while on school grounds and while on district-provided transportation.
  • All students will be issued two masks by the district. If a mask is lost, or needs replaced for some other reason, the cost will be $5.00 each.
  • Students are permitted, however, to wear face masks provided by parents/guardians as long as the mask provides at least the same level of protection as the district issued mask (3 ply) and is school appropriate according to school dress code (ie. no profane language, etc.).
  • If a student or staff member qualifies for an exemption from wearing a mask, proper documentation (ie. doctor's note, etc.) must be given to the school administrator to verify the need. In such instances, a less restrictive option will be sought (if possible).
