Mask Requirement for All West Ada Schools
COVID 19 requirements: Throughout the duration of the current pandemic, students will be required to wear a cloth face covering (mask) that fully covers the nose and mouth and fits snug against the sides of the face. Students will be allowed mask breaks when determined necessary by the teacher and appropriate social distancing can be maintained. Mask breaks will not happen in the classroom. Face shields are not permitted for use as a matter of preference and will only be used to accommodate medical and/or communication conditions. Face shields should never become an absolute substitution for cloth face coverings. Medical accommodations will be made for students with proper documentation from a medical provider. The documentation will be routed to the school nurse who will then document the accommodation in PowerSchool. Prior arrangements, based on a team decision, for students enrolled in special populations will be honored. The decision by the building administrator(s) about an acceptable mask is final. Violations of these requirements will lead to disciplinary action.
