Will this mask requirement be enforced? If so, how?

All staff and students are required to wear a mask. If a student does not have access to a mask, one will be provided free of charge by the school/District.

If a student has a health concern, then a mask waiver should be submitted to waive the mask-mandate.

If the student does not have a health concern and does not want to wear a mask, then the student will be offered Independent Study.

 

Do vaccinated staff need to wear masks?

Yes. Vaccinated staff are required to wear a mask.

 

Will vendors, visitors and volunteers be allowed on a school site?

Vendors, visitors and volunteers will be allowed on school sites if it is for essential needs (e.g. IT, M&), supplies and equipment deliveries, emergency personnel/first responders). Site leaders will need to monitor and manage visitors and vendors.
