Mask and Sanitizer Notification

  • Face Coverings: Following consultation with the school physician the following are acceptable forms of face coverings - cloth masks made with a cotton material, surgical masks, N95 masks, and gaiters made of multiple layers of cotton. Fleece masks and one layer gaiters are not acceptable.

    Hand Sanitizer: The Standing First Aid Protocols that we receive annually from our school physician permit the use of alcohol-based sanitizers with students without a physician's order. If a parent does not want their child to use a hand sanitizer they must notify the district in writing.
