Staff: All staff must wear a mask. Some employees may qualify for an ADA accommodation. If an employee is unable to wear a mask, principals should connect them with Human Resources.
Students: Students are expected to wear masks unless:
- The student has a disability related condition that prevents them from wearing a mask. IEP and 504 teams should meet to discuss what accommodations the student may need and determine if the student will receive face-to-face instruction. Staff should take extra precautions (e.g., a face shield with a mask) if a student is unable to wear a mask. Efforts should be made to desensitize the student to wearing a mask (consult Occupational Therapy).
- The student is unable to remove their mask themselves.
