IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE: Short-Term K-12 Mask Mandate

In our ongoing efforts to keep our students and staff safe during this global pandemic, and with a focus to keep our buildings open for in-person learning, the administration has made the decision to implement a short-term mask mandate K-12 for all students, staff, and visitors from Wednesday, January 12 through Friday, January 21. 

Several factors led us to make this decision, including:
• We are in a critical position with staffing; COVID cases, on top of normal absentee rates, are stretching our ability to staff our buildings 
• Student case trends following the winter break 

Additionally, the Ohio Hospital Association issued a request Ohio schools consider masking policies until more students get vaccinated. 

We will continue to monitor the evolving COVID research and data. Our priority of in-person learning will continue to guide our decision making as we work together to ensure success.

As always, we appreciate the ongoing support from parents, staff, and especially our amazing students, as we navigate the remainder of the school year.

In service to our children,
