Palo Alto Public Health Update
At 11:00 Governor Reynold’s updated the state on new research regarding mask-wearing and quarantine. Please see the attached letter from Sarah Strohman at Palo Alto Public Health. Masks are required for grades 3-12th and are highly recommended for preschool-2nd grade, but I would like to continue requiring them as much as possible for the preschool-2nd graders. As long as all students are wearing masks and if they would happen to come into contact with a positive case of COVID within the school setting, there is no longer a reason to quarantine unless that child develops symptoms. This will help us a lot by keeping students in school! Please take the time to read the attached letter. Let me know if you have any questions.
Amanda Schmidt, Superintendent
