FACE COVERINGS

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.
