Please note Governor Ducey's recent actions regarding masking-wearing do not pertain to schools and school-related activities.

Update on Mask Requirement in K-12 Schools

 

Dear School Leaders,

 

We wanted to share information we received from the Arizona Department of Health Services today in light of Governor Ducey's executive order relaxing COVID-19 restrictions. AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 is still in effect, requiring masks in all K-12 schools. Masking is one of the top mitigation strategies for safe in-person learning, as recommended by the CDC.


Masks must be worn on school campuses, on school buses, and during school-associated activities by all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.

 

Thank you,

Arizona Department of Education

 

Thank you for your consideration,

 

Mike Wright

Superintendent

Blue Ridge Unified Schools
