RE:Face Masks

Date: 8/12/2020 10:10 a.m.



  • Required for students in grade levels: K-12
  • Not required for Pre-K students
  • We understand the uniqueness and conditions of grades K-2nd.  Teachers will educate students in the importance and proper use of masks.  This is educational, not disciplinary.
  • Students not properly wearing face masks shall be educated in the importance and proper use of masks.  Re-educate the child.  No punitive action should be taken.

Students who cannot wear face masks

  • Due to medical issue: Parents should contact the school nurse
  • Due to PEC-related disability: Parents should contact Lauren Sheffield

Staff Members

  • Required for all staff members.

Types of masks allowed

  • Follow the dress code requirements listed in the student handbook. 
  • Face masks will be provided to students who need them (on buses and at school)


  • Generally, face masks will not be required on the playground, and students will be educated about social distancing in outdoor areas.


  • Face masks are required at all indoor athletic events and inside dugouts (per GHSA requirements)
