There's no escaping the new pandemic dress code as worsening numbers bring back COVID masks for students.
Here's the word . . .
A district spokesperson confirmed that because more than 3% of students or staff in the buildings were quarantined or excluded because of COVID-19, the masks will go back on.
The district's COVID-19 policy states that if a building exceeds 3%, a mask requirement must return.
Masks will be required for at least 14 days and will continue until the mark hits less than 3%.
