We encourage students to participate in civic processes and to make their voices heard. However, district and school officials are in no position to remove this mandate. We encourage all interested parties with opinions on this matter to contact local and state representatives and let your voice be heard by those with the power to make the changes you desire, and not to take any action that will threaten our ability to continue to hold in-person school, extracurricular activities, and all of the other things that have made this school year such an improvement over the last. Additionally, we invite students, parents, and staff to share their perspectives on optional masking in one of the following anonymous surveys:
Student Survey Link (Grades 6-12): https://forms.gle/38b5RmgagAsnBWi46
Parent Survey Link: https://forms.gle/QLzonAkrYMhn8yfe6
Staff Survey Link: https://forms.gle/TYQ7D5ZcXUiFQmnN9
We urge each of you to have these conversations in your homes and with your friends and family members. We need your help to keep our schools open.
