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 while the situation is closely monitored by school and local health officials.
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 released during the week of August 1st.
Dr. Tom Lind
