Worthington Park Shark Sentinel
Friday, February 25th, 2022
Dear Worthington Park Families,
What a wonderful week here at Worthington Park. Even though the week was shortened due to the Holiday Weekend, we were ecstatic to welcome our Sharks to school for four productive days. On Wednesday of this week, our Board of Education met to amend our current masking mandates and move from mandatory masking for all students and adults. Our new mandate states that masking is strongly encouraged for all those who enter Worthington Schools. However, this will be a decision for each of your households moving forward.
Please remind your students that if they ride a bus to school- they will need to continue wearing a mask to and from school. For more information, please read this flyer here. Have a wonderful and safe weekend! Please take a few minutes to review the information below and GO SHARKS!
