Attached is a letter from Diocesan Superintendent David Kessler referring to the mask policy that will be in place as we return to school one week from today.
All OCS employees, teachers, and staff along with students will be required to be masked while inside. The exception will be when eating lunch. Masks will also be required on all busses.
During outdoor classes, activities, and recess, masks will not be required.
We know that masking allowed us to conduct in person learning last year, and we believe that masking will give us the best opportunity to get the school year started off right. We also know that this was not what we envisioned for the start of school, but we are all committed to providing a safe learning environment for all of our students. As we approach Labor Day, we will evaluate our local situation in regard to the Delta variant and make whatever changes we feel are in the best interest of all involved.
