In one of my recent Barclay Bulletins I mentioned that we regularly remind students about proper mask wearing. Throughout the day, staff members may notice that a mask has slipped down below the nose or below the nose and mouth. When this happens, we remind students because we want to do our best to avoid a student quarantine due to a possible COVID exposure from improper mask wearing by somebody within six feet during the day.
We continue to partner with you, our Barclay families, in keeping students healthy and safe so I am providing teachers with another form of communication with regard to proper masking in school. Families could see a backpack note from the teacher about how consistently your child properly wears their mask. It is simply an effort to communicate what things look like during the day so that we can work together to ensure proper mask wearing.
If you have questions about this communication or a note that you receive, please email or call me. If you do not receive a note, that means your child is either great about masking or only needs an occasional reminder about pulling their mask over their nose and mouth. Thank you for your ongoing support as we work to keep students healthy and in school!
