COVID-19 Update

July 22, 2021

Dear Parents,

Welcome back!

Tuesday, August 3rd will be our first day of the 21-22 school year.  We are ready!

Below are our back-to-school Covid mitigation policies for school activities.

For students

  • Masks are not required for students who have been vaccinated.
  • The Indiana Department of Health continues to recommend the use of indoor masks for students who are not vaccinated.  To start the year, student masks will be a parental option.

  • Masks are required for all school bus services.  This is a Federal mandate (not local) and applies regardless of individual vaccination status.   The mandate governs all forms of public transportation.  It is unknown when this requirement will be lifted.

  • Masks are not required outside school buildings (recess).

  • As a reminder, vaccines have been approved by the FDA for emergency use for students 12 years old and older.

  • Vaccinated students will not be close contacts nor have to quarantine (miss school) during contact tracing investigations.

For School Visitations

  • Masking is required for all non-vaccinated adults who cannot social distance from students and staff during their visit.

We will continue implementing Covid mitigation protocols for the health and safety of our community.  Contact tracing and quarantine protocols will continue for identified positive cases of Covid-19.

We will monitor the situation and if conditions warrant more or less mitigation measures, we will communicate.

We hope you and your student(s) have a great year!

Sincerely,

Dr. Brad Snyder
Superintendent
