Plan Highlights: Health & Safety

  • Masks Required – 

    • Temporary use of masks is required for Pre-K - 12th grade students while indoors throughout the Leon County School District. Ex: In Class, transportation (buses), after school programs, etc. Masks are not required outside.
      • For parents who want to opt their Pre-K - 8th grade student(s) out of the mask requirement due to health concerns, they will need to submit the Prek-8th mask opt-out form that has been signed by a licensed medical provider. The medical mask opt-out form is due by Friday, August 27  to the student's school. 
      • For parents who want to opt their 9th - 12th grade student(s) out of the mask requirement due to health concerns or individual freedoms, they will need to submit a parental mask opt-out form. The mask opt-out form is due by Tuesday, August 17, to the student's school. 
    • Masks are a student's personal responsibility. 
    • Temporary use of masks is required for district employees when six feet of distancing cannot be maintained. 
    • Temporary use of masks is required for visitors, volunteers, mentors and outside vendors at all schools and district sites during the school day. 
    • Masks are one of many mitigation methods to help prevent COVID-19 transmission, but are not a substitute for vaccinations. 
    • Extra masks will be available at all school sites for students, employees, and visitors.  
    • Parents should initiate a request if they wish for help with compliance of mask wearing for their child. 
    • Schools and teachers will provide “reasonable assistance” to aid in student mask use.
