Our plan is to start the school year as normal as possible. The District will comply with orders or mandates from agencies with jurisdiction. Absent an order, the administration will communicate recommendations or advisories and let parents make the decision that is best for their family.
COVID-19 will be treated as we have traditionally handled any infectious illnesses in our schools, each having specific exclusion criteria. Individuals with confirmed cases of COVID-19 should remain out of school for 5 days and may return on day 6 if symptoms have improved. We ask that individuals take personal responsibility for monitoring their health and the health of their family and stay home until they are feeling better.
We will not require masks and we will not contact trace. The Dublin City School District ended the 2021-2022 school year without a mask mandate, and we were able to have critical face-to-face instruction. We will continue to be “mask welcome” at all grade levels.
