The statewide hiatus from Covid policy has been rescinded. Mr. Gallagher says the plan is to “do what we have to do to follow state law, stay open, and stay safe.” The school will have a mask optional policy for the coming school year. Immunizations requirements continue as usual, with religious and medical exemptions honored as usual. If students are seen to be symptomatic of Covid, they will be sent home. The school will have 15-minute Covid test kits available for use if needed.
