Mask Guidelines Update


At FHSD, we are regularly monitoring the COVID situation and have made a commitment to update our guidelines and processes as new information comes forward. Earlier this week, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), and the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) updated their recommendations related to students wearing masks or face coverings.

The new guidance recently published by AAP suggests “cloth face coverings can be safely worn by all children 2 years of age and older, including the vast majority of children with underlying health conditions, with rare exception.” The use of face coverings can provide an additional layer of protection against the spread of infection.

With this in mind, FHSD has updated its mask guidelines. Effective Aug. 31, all students will be required to wear a mask or face covering, regardless of grade level. This includes Pre-K – 12 and early childhood students. View additional information about Mask Guidance.
