Face Masks In Schools
Posted on 05/12/2021

Per Governor McMaster’s Executive Order 2021-23, DHEC has provided the district with an official form allowing parents/guardians, on behalf of their student, to opt-out of wearing face coverings in school buildings and facilities. Effective immediately any student with a completed DHEC form on file will be exempt from wearing face coverings in school buildings and facilities. Under federal law this exemption does not apply to bus transportation and face coverings will continue to be required on all school buses.

The form can be downloaded here. Parents or guardians should submit the completed DHEC form on their student’s behalf to the student’s school or administration.

DHEC and the CDC still recommend the use of face coverings to slow the spread of COVID-19.  Other mitigation factors including visitor restrictions, social distancing, barriers, contact tracing and quarantine procedures will remain in place until further guidance is provided.

Thank you for your patience as we implement these new protocols and procedures.
