Tonight, at the October 11 Board of Education meeting, the Board voted to use the district’s COVID-19 dashboard data to determine mask requirements on a per building basis beginning Monday, Oct. 18.
The following criteria will be used to determine if/when masks are required on a per building basis:
The district will enact a temporary mask requirement for employees, students and visitors in any district building that reaches 3.0% or higher of active, positive cases of students/staff in that building. If enacted, it will remain in effect until the percent of active, positive cases lowers below 3.0%.
There will be exemptions in place for medical, religious, brain health or other reasons at the discretion of the superintendent or designee.
This district monitors the percentage of student/staff active, positive cases on a daily basis and will communicate with a building if/when this temporary mask requirement is put in effect.
Currently, no district building exceeds 1.18% of active, positive cases.
Additional information will be available later this week regarding the process to apply for an exemption from this requirement.
