The MVR-III Board of Education approved the Summer COVID-19 Guidance Plan for all summer programming at their regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, May 19th. This guidance will be implemented following the conclusion of the regular school term.
The plan follows the same color-coded approach we have used throughout this school year. However, we will be moving from Yellow Status to Green Status with a few minor changes. The complete document is attached, but below is a short summary as it pertains to masks:
Students in Grades PreK-6 – Masks will be optional, but still recommended. Desk shields will continue to be used when practical to do so.
Students in Grades 7-12 – Masks will be required only when indoors AND within 6 feet of other people. Masks are not required when moving about the building. No masking is required when outdoors, but we highly recommend maintaining 6 ft. distancing if possible.
Faculty & Staff – Masks will be required only when indoors AND within 6 feet of other people. Masks are not required when moving throughout the building/office. Also, masks are not required when moving throughout the classroom to monitor student work. No masking is required when outdoors, but we highly recommend maintaining 6 ft distancing if possible.

Additionally, the COVID-19 Vaccine is now available to everyone 12 years of age and older. The district does not require anyone to get the COVID-19 vaccination. However, if your child receives the vaccine, please notify your school nurse with either a copy of their CDC vaccine card or medical documentation stating when the student received their vaccines. Our schools are following the CDC guidelines when it comes to determining if a student needs to remain off campus following an exposure. In most instances, a fully vaccinated student will not be asked to remain off campus following close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
