- If your school does not require universal masking, your child can still wear a mask if you choose

- Individual masking with a cloth mask probably provides limited protection against acquiring Covid in a school full of unmasked students, especially with the increased contagiousness of the delta variant.

- If you want to maximize your child’s protection by masking, then we suggest ordering a properly fitting N-95 or KN-95 mask and instruct your child on proper and consistent use.

- We strongly encourage all children to wear a face covering when they have cold/respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose or sore throat. We hope this may limit the spread of many infections beyond just Covid. Children with fever should stay home from school and consider being tested for Covid.
