Good Afternoon ConVal,
As many of you are aware, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) made significant changes to the recommendations related to the use of facial masks. In line with those recommendations, and after discussion with the COVID 19 Monitoring team, the following changes will be made to the use of masks on ConVal School District property effective immediately.
- Masks will not be required on the field of play as it relates to athletics. When teams travel to other Districts for competition all athletes and staff will follow the guidelines of the hosting fields related to masking. When teams participate in NHIAA related playoff tournaments all athletes and staff will follow the guidelines of the tournament related to masking.
- The use of masks outdoors will be limited to occasions when physical distancing (3 feet) cannot be maintained.
- The use of masks indoors and on buses will continue as is outlined in the Reopening Plan.
- Large outdoor events such as graduation, prom, end of the year performances, and award ceremonies that may present challenges with physical distancing will continue to require the use of masks.
Thank you for your continued support and flexibility as we make adjustments to our procedures related to the global pandemic.
