St. Joseph School will require all staff PreK-12 and all students in grades 4-12 to wear a face covering anytime they are within a 6-foot diameter of another person.
Face coverings may be worn by students and staff at all times if desired by the individual.
Guidelines for face coverings include the following:
Face coverings should be worn properly, completely covering the individual's nose and mouth.
Face coverings must not contain content or material that is obscene, offensive, inappropriate, or distracting to the learning environment.
Face shields are permitted but not as a substitute for a face covering. If a student desires to wear a facial shield, he/she must wear a face covering underneath.
Face coverings with valves, bandanas, and gaiters are not acceptable for use as a face covering.
