• Face Coverings/Masks

    Face coverings are required for students in grades PreK through 12 at all times, unless eating, drinking, or when more than six feet from others. Schools will use strategies to utilize face masks/coverings as much as possible. Each site will maximize physical distancing practices, acknowledging that physical distancing of 6 feet or greater is not feasible in certain instances.
