    • Students who cannot social distance will be encouraged to be masked
    • Once social distancing is in place, masks do not need to be worn, but can be if parents wish for their child to do so
    • All students have been given a mask (or will be at Elementary Orientation on 8/13)
    • Elementary students will also be given a lanyard to keep their mask on
  • There will be no back to school dance and no fall scrimmages
