2021-2022 Health and Safety Plan

On Thursday, July 15, 2021, the Board approved a Health and Safety plan for the 2021-2022 school year. Our Plan, available below, was drafted on the following expectations:

  • All schools will be open for in-person instruction five (5) days a week.
  • Staff and students will not be required to wear face masks while at school.
  • Staff and students will be required to wear a face mask while riding school transportation in alignment with a federal CDC mandate regarding public transportation.
  • Individuals who wish to wear face masks as a mitigation measure will be permitted to do so – but that will be their personal choice.
  • Staff and students will not be required to be vaccinated in order to work at or attend our schools.
  • We will offer both full-time and blended virtual learning options through our ExCEL Virtual Learning Academy.
