Masks Strongly Recommended in School Buildings

Beginning Tuesday, January 18, masks will be strongly recommended but no longer required in our school buildings. However, due to federal public transportation requirements, masks are still required on school transportation, including school buses.  Additionally, students and staff who have been identified as close contacts to a positive COVID case will still be required to mask for a designated period of time following exposure. We will continue to monitor our COVID data, and work with the Stark County Health Department to follow their COVID guidelines.
