Today, Friday, October 1, 2021, The Crawford County Health Department recommended that the schools of Crawford County could be mask optional for meeting the gating criteria they had put in place. This will go into effect on Monday, October 4th, 2021. All other mitigations will remain in place including quarantine and close contacts. Masks must still be worn when in school transportation. This is a federal mandate. If you wish for your child to wear a mask it is not a teacher's responsibility to make sure they have a mask on. The gating criteria will be checked on a regular basis and if any building in the district goes over 3% absentee due to COVID masks may be required again for that building. As of now if any staff or student has had a documented case of COVID or is fully vaccinated they will not have to quarantine. We will do all we can as a district to remain mask optional, but we also must realize that COVID is not over and we still need to take precautions against the virus. If you have questions or concerns you may contact the district office.
