Back to School 2021-22

What School Will Look Like

  • At home, check your temperature and grab your mask and water bottle.
  • On the bus, students will have assigned seats and the windows will be open (weather permitting).
  • Masks are required on school buses, on campus, and at district facilities. 
  • In the classroom, students will have assigned seats socially distanced by 3 feet where feasible.
  • Families can breathe a little easier knowing classrooms are equipped with a HEPA air filtration system within each classroom.
  • At lunchtime, campuses will offer lunch outside as much as possible, and students will have assigned seats when eating in the cafeteria.
  • Learn more by reading our Health Protocols.
