We will be distributing the government provided Medical Face Masks and Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kits to all of our students this afternoon. Students will receive a Ziplock baggie with 20 face masks in it. The government’s intention was to provide a two week supply of masks – 2 masks to be used each school day for 10 school days.
While these medical-grade masks are the recommended minimum level of protection for students, it is also acceptable if your child has another type of mask that they prefer to wear instead. Students will also receive a box containing 5 Covid-19 rapid tests – if you would like you could test your student 2 times a week (72 hours apart) for 2 weeks and 1 time on the third week. Again, this is a recommendation and not an expectation.
Our teachers will be helping to ensure students bring home these government supplied items today. This afternoon they will take time out of their classes to distribute them, and have students safely stow them in their backpacks.
If your student is absent today or this afternoon, they can pick up their supplies in the office next week.
