Guidelines for Face Masks for OCS Students

When schools begin in the fall, all students in grades 1st through 12th and every employee will be required to wear a mask. With this requirement to be masked when in movement or when 6 feet of distancing is not possible during a school day, we are not requiring a specific uniform mask for students. In fact, we are open to students creative designs and creations provided they do not promote or wear any bias related apparel, sign or symbol which reasonably appears to offend, victimize or intimidate another based on race, age, color, religion, sex, national origin, or disability and/or which disrupts or interferes with the educational setting and/or process. This act includes the wearing of gang clothing or paraphernalia and the use of gang signs and signals. Students also cannot promote any political agenda or make any political statement via their apparel, signs or symbols.
