Fall Plans:  The first day of school will be Thursday, August 12, 2021. We are planning for full in-person instructional programs in classrooms for all grades in the fall. The continued use of face coverings will be used as a common-sense risk reduction strategy. The current guidance for schools is based on evidence from the CDC that shows vaccines are extremely effective in protecting vaccinated individuals from infection, severe illness, and death, as well as preventing them from spreading COVID-19 to others. The wearing of face coverings in schools complements vaccinations and helps protect people who cannot yet get vaccinated, people who may not get the full benefit from the vaccine, and people with weakened immune systems.
