Mask Updates: Begin April 3

On Monday, April 3, 2023, masks will no longer be required in our schools, but students and staff are welcome to wear a mask if it is their preference. We encourage families to take COVID-19 tests at home if they are feeling sick, and we ask students to stay home and follow the new COVID-19 isolation guidelines. We ask students and staff to consider wearing a mask during school if they are exhibiting symptoms of illness.

Keeping COVID-19 resources stocked at home is an important prevention tool. COVID-19 tests are available at local pharmacies, through insurance options, and can be ordered by mail. Students may also ask for a COVID-19 test or mask in our office.
