MASKED UP MONDAY THROUGH THE END OF THE SEMESTER

Mask Mandate Messaging from Superintendent Karen Melin

Good evening district families,

Our commitment to you this school year is to keep in-person learning as an option and to keep students in school and learning in a safe environment. To increase that effort the Board of Education voted 5-2 last night in favor of requiring masks for the remainder of the first semester. Students and staff wearing masks is an effective tool to reduce the number of close contacts and allow many more students to stay in school and learning.

Mandatory masks will go into effect on Monday, September 13.

The amended motion reads:

Require masks for the first semester, with the school board reevaluating the matter for the second semester, at its December 7 Regular Meeting, with the 2021-22 Operational Guidelines regarding masking to include the following:

Mandatory mask wearing for students, staff, and visitors (age 2 and older) when indoors; and

Mandatory mask wearing at extracurricular events per ASAA guidelines.

The district’s COVID mitigation plan, Maintaining In-Person Learning During COVID-19, is in the process of being updated to include new masking language.

A few commonly asked questions are:

What sort of mask should my student wear?

Review the CDC Your Guide to Masks for mask information.

What if my student needs a medical exemption for wearing a mask?

Families should fill out the medical exemption form for their student and submit it to the school nurse and principal.

How does this impact student athletes and district sport events?
Staff and spectators must wear a mask during extracurricular indoor activities. Participating student athletes do not have to wear a mask for the duration of the practice or game. Student athletes already engage in regular antigen screening and travel protocols.

Currently ASAA does not have any requirements for local events or student-athletes. Any updates will be found on the ASAA websiteand on the district’s Student Activities page.

What options do families have if they want to change their student’s learning option?

Thank you to our staff and families for your patience and understanding as we all work together to keep our students in-person this school year.

Student Spotlight- Weishi Wang

Congratulations Weishi Wang as this week's featured Student Spotlight


This week we are excited to share the newly elected Student Body President, Weishi Wang as our featured Student Spotlight. Weishi is a senior in both the Arts A/V and IT clusters. "I been doing classes in both clusters since I started at Hutch." Weishi enjoys being able to have his elective classes be career-focused and believes that will help him to be better prepared for life after high school.


When asked why he chose to run for student council Weishi stated that he wants to make a difference at Hutch and give back to his school community, especially during the Covid times. "I want to help make the school become even more efficient and to help all of my classmates have a good year." While he's new to the student council, Weishi is already proving to be a respected leader full of collaborative skills. He and the student council are preparing for an upcoming spirit week with a zoomed assembly during Extension hour.


Outside of being a student, Weishi has also been a varsity member of the Hutchison track and field program as well as basketball. His height on the court provides a good advantage. Weishi is also involved in gaming, which makes sense with his interest in technology.


Congratulations to this week's student spotlight senior Weishi Wang!

Students should be checking their google classrooms, and if there are any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to the teacher. As you do we ask that you be patient. Our teachers are teaching from 7:30-2:00 daily so they may not respond to your email immediately, but they will.
