Face coverings will be worn at all times except when eating, drinking, and practicing social distancing within a designated outdoor area. All classrooms will have a designated outdoor area to ensure that students are able to take frequent breaks from wearing their masks. In areas where shade or coverage is needed, tents will be utilized. Face coverings will also not be required during rest time for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Face coverings should be worn outside when students are not able to practice social distancing. While the school will provide a set of color-coded (by grade-level) masks, your child is welcome to wear a mask of his/her choice, so long as it is appropriate and provides the proper coverage. In this case, we still will ask that you purchase the school’s masks to ensure that we have back-ups at school.
