Masks help people reduce the spread of the virus by minimizing the risk that someone who is unknowingly carrying the virus will expose others.
Students and staff will bring a minimum of two masks to school each day. Masks will be worn at all times by all people while in the buildings or near other people anywhere on campus.
Masks with ventilation valves, buffs, and scarves are not permitted.
Masks must be worn under the chin and over the mouth and nose.
Cotton masks must be washed at home each day and surgical masks thrown away.
In addition to recess and outside breaks, students who have health conditions that make it difficult to wear a mask for extended times will be able to work with teachers and the AAS nurses to include additional “mask breaks.”
Face-shields may be worn in addition to masks, but they do not take the place of masks.
