Updated protocols: 

  • Wearing a mask will no longer be required for outdoor activities when physical distancing can be maintained, such as recess. Parents or guardians will need to provide consent for their children to go maskless in outdoor activities. Families can find consent forms at their campus.
  • End-of-year activities such as promotion ceremonies are allowed outdoors.
  • Quarantining is now required for ten days, except in cases when individuals did not wear masks consistently, or high-risk people who are not vaccinated are involved, which would require a 14-day quarantine.
  • Tours and campus visitors for educational activities and instructional purposes with prior approval are allowed if COVID-19 screening procedures (including screening and temperature checks) are involved.
