Beginning on Monday, September 13th, 2021, Sandusky City Schools will require all students to wear face coverings while in District buildings. District employees have been required to wear face coverings since September 7th, 2021. After careful consideration and reviews of district COVID-19 cases, Sandusky City Schools determined this transition is the most effective to allow students to continue with face-to-face learning at this time. Sandusky City Schools’ number one goal is to ensure the safety and security of all students, faculty, staff, administrators, families, and the community at large with a large focus on academic priorities. This requirement will be reviewed periodically based on trends by district officials.
The requirement of everyone within district buildings having to wear face coverings is based on the following goals:
- To keep all SCS students, Preschool through 12th grade in school, with face-to-face learning, five days a week.
- To minimize quarantine requirements due to the wearing of face coverings.
- Align district procedures with district academic priorities, ensuring SCS students receive the best educational opportunities possible.
Dr. Eugene Sanders, Chief Executive Officer, and Superintendent stated, “After reviewing COVID-19 trends, it is clear that requiring face coverings for students, along with employees, is the best course of action to keep everyone safe. We will continue to review trends, data, and district requirements throughout the course of this year. We appreciate the entire Blue Streak Family as they remain flexible throughout these transitions.”
