Shelton's Mask Requirement

Mask Requirement

Masks are required in school buildings

Masks are required in school buildingsThe Shelton School District is committed to creating a healthy and welcoming environment for our students. A part of our responsibility is to ensure our schools support health measures that minimize the transmission of communicable diseases, which includes Covid-19.

Currently, as we minimize the spread of Covid-19, we are taking a multi-layered approach. Masks, frequent hand-washing, and physical distancing are some of the measures we are consistently taking. The rules for upholding these current measures come from Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-05 and 20-14 and the Washington State Department of Health. One long held example for health requirements is the need for incoming students to provide proof of vaccination for measles, mumps and rubella.

Any
individual entering a school building must wear a mask. In-person School Board meetings are included in the Governor’s mandate and those in attendance will need to wear a mask, including school board members, staff, parents, visitors, community members, etc. While the mandates have brought a lot of frustration, the risks of Covid-19 are great and masks help increase everyone's health when we are indoors or in close proximity to one another. If we can’t conduct meetings in person, we will need to return to online School Board meetings. Public comment is still offered whether the meeting is in-person or online.

We look forward to getting on the other side of the pandemic so we can more freely operate as one community. Shelton Proud!
