COVID Information and updates


Effective Immediately

Monday, February. 21, 2022, desk shields and face coverings will become optional for all students and staff members in school facilities. Masks will also be optional on school buses due to our decline in positivity rates.

· There will be no contact tracing within schools.

· If a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19 they must quarantine for 5 days and may return to work or school on day 6 if they are asymptomatic. 

· Parents, just a reminder, that if your child is showing symptoms of illness, please contact your physician and refrain from sending them to school until they are asymptomatic.

· Please continue to utilize effective hygiene strategies such as hand washing and utilization of hand sanitizer.

Thank you for your cooperation,
