Addendum to our 8/9/21 Back to School Newsletter

Dear Sandymount Families ~

As you may be aware, at the 8/11/21 BOE meeting there were some updates that were not reflected in our 8/9/21 Back to School Newsletter. Please carefully read the bulleted items below:

  • The BOE voted to continue to make masks optional for the upcoming school year. This will continue to be monitored and revisited/revised based on trend data.

  • Masks are still mandatory on school buses, which is currently a Federal mandate.

  • Visitors and volunteers will not be permitted in school buildings throughout the first quarter (this information is a change from what was in our original newsletter).

  • Social distancing will be in effect to the best extent possible, based on size of the room and the number of students.

Any further updates will be shared with families. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
