Mask Requirements

Who is required to wear a mask?

The mandatory mask requirement will be in effect for all students, staff, and visitors in our schools, buildings, and on student transportation. 

Are there any exceptions?

Exceptions based on medical needs for students and staff must be documented by a physician and that documentation will be treated as confidential and retained in the office of the principal. Some students with disabilities may be exempt based on individual needs as determined by the Director of Special Education. Staff members may remove their masks when students are not present and social distancing from other adults is possible. Students and adults may remove their mask when they are eating or drinking, or other activities approved by the principal.

Do we need to provide a mask for our student or is one provided by the schools?

We ask parents to provide reusable masks for their students, but we will be able to provide masks for students who are unable to provide one on their own.

Can you wear a face shield instead of a mask?

Every student, staff member, and visitor needs to wear a mask. Face shields can add an extra layer of protection and be worn in conjunction with a mask. We have been advised by health authorities that a face shield does not offer the needed protection if a mask is also not worn. 

What are requirements for masks?

ALLOWED:

  • Cloth masks with multiple layers of tightly woven, breathable fabric
  • Disposable masks constructed of multiple layers of non-woven material
  • Gator style face coverings that are doubled to create two layers

NOT ALLOWED:

  • Masks made of thin fabric that doesn’t block light.
  • Masks made of lace, mesh, or a similar fabric that appear see-through when held up to a light source.
