Will my child be required to wear a mask during the school day while in their classroom?
Today's question is on the topic of masks. Students will be required to wear masks at the times in which we can not ensure physical distancing to take place. Examples of this are in the hallway, front office, etc. Because of Holy Rosary's beneficial small class sizes and ample square footage in classrooms, students will not be required to wear a face mask while in their classrooms. We will be able to safely distance the children from other classmates and staff while in their classroom environment. There may be times during the day in which teachers will not be able to have all students physically distanced and in those situations, they will be notified that they will need to put their masks on.
Please know that our staff will be working hard to teach procedures for proper mask wearing, in addition to washing hands, using sanitizer, and physical distancing practices to all grade levels. Your kids are smart! Your kids are teachable! Your kids are great listeners! We are confident that they will be able to be diligent mask wearers, no matter the age, when called upon to do so.
Lastly, remember that HRCS will be supplying all students with masks and they will be kept on school premises. We will be laundering and sanitizing all used masks each night to ensure the consistent safety of our students. Please do not plan to send a mask from home with your child. Teachers and staff will be required to use face coverings when working in a room with other people/students when they cannot physically distance. In addition, visitors and volunteers to the school will be required to bring their own masks and wear while in the school building.
