Masks Are Still Required!
A few reminders
K-12 schools are an exemption to the updated mask guidance from the CDC. Staff and students regardless of vaccination status will continue to be required to wear masks through the end of the current school year.
- Parents and students on school property before and after school must continue to wear a mask.
- Please continue to provide a clean mask to your child for school each day. The mask should cover your child’s mouth, nose, and chin.
- Although we have some extra face masks at school, consider packing an extra mask or two in case your child’s mask becomes soiled, breaks, or goes missing during recess.
Thank you for helping everyone stay safe and healthy.

A waiver can be found on the MPSD website under services>nursing services>parent forms. Due to the limited access of medical appointments in the last year many children are behind in this requirement.
