Reunite - Reignite - Reimagine 2021
The School Board, at its August 3 Special Meeting, approved the requirement for masks to be worn by all students, staff, and visitors while inside MCPS school buildings starting August 12, 2021, (with the exception of special circumstances identified and approved by administration.) Masks will be required, regardless of vaccination status, when inside MCPS buildings and on school buses.
Masks will not be required when eating or during recess, PE, athletics, or other outdoor activities.
Universal masking for the start of the school year aligns with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the recommendations of local and state public health authorities. The School Board will continue to monitor information from these agencies, and if conditions or recommendations change, the division will make adjustments accordingly.
We look forward to serving our students and families during the 2021-2022 school year.
