Good Morning Parents,

As I am sure everyone is aware, I wanted to share with everyone information about Executive Order 251 which requires masks in schools. As per the Executive Order...

"All public, private, and parochial preschool programs and elementary and secondary schools, including charter and renaissance schools (collectively “school districts”), must maintain a policy regarding mandatory use of face masks by staff, students, and visitors in the indoor portion of the school district premises,"  This is regardless of their vaccination status.

There are some exceptions (circumstances where masks can't be worn, such as those under the age of 2 years old) to the Executive Order which are outlined in more detail at the link below. Please note the Executive Order is effective as of Monday, Aug. 9th, thus this order does apply to ESY and summer school programs. This does not apply to summer camp programs which are governed by other executive orders. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Below is a link containing more information:


As always this information is subject to change.

Best regards,

Tina Underwood
