In accordance with the “Health and Safety Guidance for Ohio K-12 Schools” issued by the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Education, and in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Board will enforce the rules set forth in this policy concerning face coverings (“masks”).A mask is a cloth/fabric device or garment which is worn around the face and covers an individual’s nose, mouth, and chin, so as to reduce the spread of respiratory droplets that, in infected people, carry and spread COVID-19.

Except as otherwise permitted herein, all persons entering upon District property, and all occupants of school buses and vans, are required to wear a mask at all times. This requirement applies to, but is not limited to, the following: employees, volunteers, Board members, students, parents/guardians, community members, contractors, businesses, groups renting the District’s facilities, persons attending Board meetings, and persons attending extra-curricular activities.
