On September 2, 2021, the Genesee County Health Department issued an update to their initial Health Order, August 12, 2021. The initial order required students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade to consistently and properly wear a face mask. The new, updated, Health Order, effective Tuesday, September 7, 2021, will now mandate all staff, students (in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade), and visitors consistently and properly wear a face mask inside school buildings at all times.
The intent of this update is to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to keep our students in school. The expanded Health Order applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals and includes before and after school activities and events that take place inside our school buildings.
