Student Face Covering/Mask Information

  • Face masks/coverings are required for students whenever indoors in all district buildings/facilities except where noted under "not required" in the following information sheet.  A face mask/covering is also required when moving through the building – including hallways, communal spaces and public spaces and on all district-provided transportation.

    Students who cannot tolerate a face covering due to developmental, medical or behavioral health condition may be exempt from wearing a face covering and must wear a face shield instead.

    An exemption form, which can be obtained from your home school administration, must be signed by a parent/guardian and a medical authority. A medical authority includes a medical doctor, psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner.

    Staff face covering/mask information can be found in internal resource guides.
