Covid Update

Macon-Hall is committed to your child’s safety. All students and staff are required to wear masks in the building and desk shields are in every classroom. Additionally, students are now eating lunch in the classroom instead of the cafeteria. This allows for more space between the students and an easier ability for us to contact trace in the event of a positive covid test.
