Masking

The CDC is requiring masks on school buses. This includes going to school, coming home from school and transportation for all sports teams and the band.

At the present time there is no requirement for masks in schools, However keep in mind that if the CDC, or the Ohio Department of Health, or the Governor mandates masks, we will be required to follow that order.

Parents have the option to mask their child at school if they wish.
