From Our Health Department

The majority of our students are following mask expectations each day and all day. As a reminder it is the district expectation that all students wear masks appropriately (covering their nose and mouth) while inside the school building and on buses.

Please emphasize the importance of this expectation. We need to maintain safe and consistent practices and avoid defiance issues.
