Change in Face Mask Requirements--COVID-19
In alignment with the new guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC):
Face masks are still required for students, staff, and other persons inside the school building during the instructional day, and while riding on school transportation to and from the instructional day. This requirement will be in effect through June 10, 2021.
Effective immediately, face masks are no longer required for participants and spectators at school district activities and events (indoors and outdoors) that fall outside the instructional day (and fall outside school transportation to and from the instructional day). The MDH and the CDC recommend persons who have not been vaccinated for COVID-19 continue to wear face masks at such events.
Please note, the previous limitations on capacity for indoor events remain in place through May 27.
Also note, previous COVID-19 health and safety protocols (social distancing, quarantine/isolation), during the instructional day, remain in place through June 10.
