Face coverings can be worn by any staff member, student, or visitor.  It is recommended but not required.

District will continue with recommended hand washing stations at the entrances.   Students are taught to wash their hands, cover their mouth when coughing in all classrooms throughout the school district.

District will continue the daily cleaning of our buildings.  We have disinfectant spray machines to aide in this cleaning process.

Contact tracing is no longer required or being done.  We continue to get updates
