As we communicated earlier today, the District has adopted new, less-restrictive guidelines from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) with regard to masking. Effective immediately, masks are no longer required to be worn by students or staff while outdoors – this includes participants and spectators at athletic events.
Masks will continue to be required for all students and staff while indoors, unless a record of vaccination is presented to the main office at your child’s school. For any vaccinated student who does not want to wear a mask indoors, a simple copy of their vaccination card, with date(s) of dose(s), will suffice. Until this record is submitted, your student will continue to be required to mask while indoors.
As a reminder, MDHHS defines “fully vaccinated” as 14 days after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna or 14 days after the single dose of Johnson & Johnson. The same requirement applies to staff members as well.
We will continue to keep you informed of any updates regarding our health and safety guidelines.
