Our district mask policy was updated. Any individual who enters the school can't wear a gaiter mask.


Students must wear a mask at all times. The mask needs to cover the nose and mouth. Students may ask the teacher for a mask break if needed and step outside the classroom for one minute and then return to the classroom.

MAX OCCUPANCY

SCREENING

Students will be screened in one of three areas:

  • Bus (at the staff parking lot)
  • Upper Ag lot (This parking lot is for parents/guardians to drop off their children - students are screened from the vehicle.)
  • Stadium lot (This parking lot is for student drivers).


Students will be asked the attestation questions, have their temperature taken, and then will have a stamp placed on their wrist or forearm. We will use the stamp as our backup way of checking to make sure all students have been screened before entering the building.

SHARED LEARNING AREAS

The shared learning areas are off limits right now because of the covid restrictions.
