Family Masking/Face Covering Update

Most of you have already begun to hear that change is in the air. Our School Board has reviewed the data, read guidelines, listened to concerned families, and has made the decision to move our schools to masking optional settings beginning February 21, 2022. The motion made by the Board is not intended to override any CDC directions and face masks are encouraged while community transmission levels remain high and substantial.
