Students return for full day in-person teaching and learning on Tuesday, Aug. 17. All who work on public school campuses are mandated to be fully vaccinated, and show proof of their vaccination, or submit to weekly COVID testing.
Here are some of the many measures we are taking to keep everyone safe while still maintaining a strong focus on the learning and achievement of our students. Please note that the guidance may change and necessitate modification to the below procedures.

They will not be allowed inside and should leave campus as quickly as possible. Subsequent to the First Day: Visitors will be required to show verification of vaccine or a negative test within 72 hours. Regional testing sites will be set up to support this, along with continued offering of vaccination clinics.
