Return to Learn

August 12, 2021 

Dear Falcon Family:

I hope this message finds everyone doing well and enjoying the summer. As we move through August we are just over two weeks (August 30th for students) before the start of the 2021-22 school year. 

With that being said, I realize that there are conversations about what the new school year will look like. At this time, masks or facial coverings are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in the school building whether vaccinated or unvaccinated but will not be mandated. It will be a parental/personal preference on whether you want your child to wear a mask while in the school building. Please keep in mind that the mask requirement can change at any time depending on Federal or State orders. Again, masks in school are a parental/personal preference. Please be respectful of others' choices. 

It is a FEDERAL MANDATE that everyone riding on a school bus is REQUIRED to wear a mask. This FEDERAL MANDATE will be in effect until we are told otherwise. 

If you would like more information on our 2021-22 Return to School plans, please visit “OTHER INFO” on the website or click this link.

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 

Yours in Education, 

Jeff Young
