This message is to update you on COVID-19 mask requirements. The Governor announced today – for both staff and students regardless of vaccination status – the indoor mask requirements will be lifted for our schools as of 11:59 p.m. on March 11th. The Department of Health will require masking on buses until March 11th, after which it will also be lifted as per the Centers for Disease Control recommendations.
We will continue to work with Spokane Regional Health District on safety precautions and mitigations for our schools. Our Central Valley staff, students, and families have worked diligently through COVID-19 mitigation protocols to keep our schools open for student learning and for that we are proud.
While we know that this news is too soon for some and not soon enough for others; we remain committed to the health and safety of our students and staff as well as meeting our community’s needs.
Expect additional details as we look to implement these changes in March.
