Important Back to School

Face Masks

  • The CDC's website states "If you are not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places." and, "If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission." 

  • In light of the increase in the number of reported positive Covid cases in Sebring, masks will be mandatory for all staff, students, and visitors.
