A Message from Our Superintendent

Mask Variance

On April 27, Dr. Harrist, state public health officer, informed FCSD #1 that our application for a mask variance was approved. School board trustees met this morning to discuss approval of the mask variance and adopt revisions to the smart start plan. After discussion, the board adopted a change to the plan to no longer mandate the use of masks within the school setting. That change will take effect on Monday May 3, 2021.

One exception to this change is in regards to school transportation services. We will still require all students and staff riding in district-owned vehicles, including busses, to wear masks. The board was also advised that the mask variance is subject to change by health officials if there is an increase in COVID-19 positives in the community. Quarantine and isolation guidance remain in place so we ask families to remain vigilant in their health screening at home to minimize exposure and quarantines in our schools.

It is important to note that while masks are no longer mandated, staff and students will be fully supported if they choose to wear masks in the school setting. We ask that all students and staff be respectful of each individual’s personal choice in this matter. Parents wishing to change the placement of their child for the last four weeks of school should contact their principal to let them know of the change. Students who choose a move to the virtual setting will get information on equipment and how to login. Depending on which school your child attends, this transition may take a couple of days to implement.
