Dear Parents and School Community Members,
I am writing to provide an update on our health and safety protocols. Though the recent changes in state guidance regarding mask wearing in public spaces may be confusing, the state has been clear that the guidance governing mask wearing during school hours remains in place. The one exception is that we are permitted to allow flexibility when students are in conditions of “extreme heat.” In consultation with our local health official, we have maintained our mask-wearing protocols during school hours, but have been relaxing the requirements for students on an as-needed basis during field days this week, pursuant to the guidance.
I also am writing to remind you that the next board of education meeting is Thursday, June 10. At that meeting, there will be an opportunity for public comment on the safe reopening plan required by the state as part of the American Rescue Plan grant process.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
