Dear Parents and Guardians, I want to thank all of you for your patience in dropping off your children and picking them up at the end of the day. It is wonderful having every student in person all day long with our teachers. In order to continue with in person learning we must follow the mask mandate. Recently some questions have come up concerning proper face coverings. Face Coverings as defined by OSHA and ODE means a cloth, polypropylene, paper or other face covering that covers the nose and the mouth and that rests snugly above the nose, below the mouth, and on the sides of the face. The following are not face coverings because they allow droplets to be released: a covering that incorporates a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhalation, mesh masks, lace masks or other coverings with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material or vents. Students will be respectfully reminded to wear their mask properly or if they come with an improper face covering, they will be given a school mask for the day by school staff. If you have questions give your building principal or district office a call.
