Dear Nippersink SD 2 Families:
Nippersink School District 2 will be starting the 2021-22 school year making face coverings or masks optional for its students while in District school buildings. In addition, the District will continue to ensure that all other COVID-19 mitigations will continue to be implemented with fidelity and to the highest standard.
COVID-19 positivity rates and case numbers will continue to be monitored in our community and schools on a daily basis. If the community and school data indicate a significant increase in the positivity rate or number of actual COVID-19 cases, the District may need to return to face coverings for a two-week period of time. During this two week period, school and health officials will closely monitor the school Covid data and reassess the need to continue or not continue masking.
The Nippersink SD 2 Board of Education and administration are committed to maintaining a healthy learning environment that remains flexible and responsive to the changing educational landscape that COVID-19 can create.
A full District plan regarding COVID-19 mitigations for the Fall of 2021 will be released during the week of August 1st.
Dr. Tom Lind
