Mask Display

MASKS

  • All staff and students will be expected to wear masks all day. (with the exception of eating)

  • Students are required to wear a face covering to school everyday. They should be new or cleaned on a daily basis to remove any germs or bacteria from the previous day.

  • If a child arrives without a face covering the school will provide one for them.

  • If they refuse they will be placed in remote learning as not to jeopardize the health of any other person in the school building

What Types of Face Coverings Are Not Permitted on DOE Property?

  • Bandanas and neck gaiters are not permitted.

  • Face coverings with an exhalation valve or vent are not permitted as exhalation valves allow unfiltered exhaled air to escape to others.

  • Face coverings that completely cover or hide an individual’s face, such as ski masks, are not permitted.

  • Unless otherwise approved by school administration, clear face shields cannot be worn unless accompanied by a face covering.

temperature checks

  • Temperature checks will be random and will be conducted by school aides and other staff upon students’ arrival to building

  • We ask that all parents take their child’s temperature every day before sending them into the building and to please keep them home if they have a temperature.

  • Daily Health Screenings will be conducted before students enter the building (awaiting further guidance)
