For the start of school, we are asking all persons, including students on campus, to please wear a mask in classrooms and confined spaces. Masks will not be required in outdoor areas. For Upper School, like last year, masks should be blue, black, or white and absent of any logos or writing.
We will re-evaluate this policy during the first 30 days of school and follow guidance and recommendations from the federal, state, and local levels. It is quite possible, at that time, we will be willing to offer a waiver to those who do not want to wear a mask or want their child to not wear a mask. Our goal is the same; to keep our school safe and healthy. As a school, we will continue with reinforcing good hand hygiene, social distancing in classrooms to the extent possible, water bottle fillers vs. water fountains, and timely contact tracing when needed.
