Masks Optional
Posted on 07/07/2021
Dear EPSD9 Patrons, Summer School Students and Staff,

Wearing masks will be voluntary in our summer programs for staff and students. The new Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance from ODE, which became effective on June 30th gives us flexibility on this topic and because of the high temperatures and the variations in Air Conditioning across our facilities, it is prudent to give our staff and students the option not to wear masks.

We will continue to follow our other protocols including social distancing, sanitizing and cohorting. Please be aware that this decision could be reversed based on county metrics and the rate of COVID-19 exposures within our schools.

Also, this decision does not yet, at this time, extend to the upcoming academic year. If you have questions or concerns please contact Student Services Supervisor Phil Ortega.

Thank you for your support and help with our summer programs.

Andy Kovach
Superintendent
