Masks

operating plan

Masks will be required for all students, staff and visitors inside EVSC facilities as we begin the 2021-2022 school year. In order to provide additional clarity with readily obtainable objective measurements, we will use the Indiana Department of Health’s (IDH) “weekly 2-metric score” on their dashboard as the determining factor for when masks are required versus when they are recommended. Click here to view the IDH dashboard and state Covid map. A Vanderburgh County score of 1.5 or above will result in masks being required. When the score drops to 1.0 or below we will return to masks being recommended.

Correct Wearing of Masks:
When wearing masks, it is important to wear and handle the mask properly for maximum effectiveness. Please see the helpful CDC guidance link, which also includes how to properly wear, store and wash your masks.
