Face Coverings (Masks)
The use of face coverings are required by all persons in Marshall County Central Schools School Buildings and on buses unless approved by our school nurse or doctor. Preschool and Head Start students are allowed to remove their mask in the classroom area but will be required to wear them in common areas of school and on the school bus.
Face Covering advised should be a cloth face covering that covers the nose and mouth below the chin. This could be a mask, scarf, or gaiter.
Face Coverings must follow school dress code.
Face coverings can be removed only at meal times, in the gym during physical activity time, and while outdoors when social distancing can be practiced. We are scheduling a walking break during the day to allow students an opportunity to go outside and take off masks while enjoying a walk.
For those with a doctor or school nurse approval, additional precautions may be used, including the use of an alternative shield or barrier. A Face Shield is not a substitute for a mask. It is an alternative in certain medical circumstances. A medical exemption form is required for all face covering exemption requests and must include certification by a physician.
The district has face masks available for each student and staff member. We have cloth and disposable that attach to ears in both child and adult sizes.
Students and staff may choose to supply their own face covering but they must meet the following guidelines:
Should a student or staff member forget a mask, a disposable mask will be provided for the day.
All visitors are required to wear a mask once they enter a school building. Disposable masks are available at each front entrance.
Current Status of COVID 19:
The state of Minnesota is moving to a mitigation strategy with goal of slowing the spread of this illness. Schools will be closed until March 27 to allow time to prepare for a possible longer term shut down.
