Updated Mask Policy for PK-12 Students and Staff


To All in the Northwest Community:

As many of you know, all of us have worked very hard to maintain a sense of normalcy with the start of the school year. We have been thrilled with our start in seeing our teachers back in the classroom with our students.

Even with our excellent start to the school year, we have experienced constant obstacles that refuse to subside. Of course, this is regarding COVID. We started the school year with masks being recommended and not required for students and staff. We believe this was the correct decision at the time.

Based on our current active case  and quarantine numbers we have made the decision to require masks for staff and students.  Please read the attached documents.
