SDNC Masks Update: Effective beginning September 1- No more masks with exhalation valves or vents. The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. Masks with one-way valves or vents allow exhaled air to be expelled out through holes in the material. This can allow exhaled respiratory droplets to reach others and potentially spread the COVID-19 virus. Therefore, CDC does not recommend using masks if they have an exhalation valve or vent. If needed, the school will have a disposable mask to give to students until a new mask can be purchased. All students were given a cloth mask which can still be used.

Please make sure that there is a working phone number on file at the school should your child become sick. Sick children will not be allowed to ride the bus. Asegúrese de que haya un número de teléfono que funcione en el archivo de la escuela en caso de que su hijo se enferme. Los niños enfermos no podrán viajar en el autobús.
Toolkit Tip: Please self screen your children before coming to school. If they have been a close contact of a positive case within 14 days or showing COVID-19 symptoms, please do not send them to school and contact your school nurse. See the Parent Toolkit for details.
