Facial Coverings are Requirements

An acceptable face covering includes cloth face coverings and surgical masks. A face covering must be worn when on campus.

Wearing a face covering prevents a person from spreading respiratory droplets while talking, singing, breathing or coughing. Facial coverings primarily protect other people in case the wearer is asymptomatic or unknowingly infected with COVID-19.

All CUSD staff and students are required to wear a facial covering while indoors on a school campus. If a student or staff member is unable to wear a facial covering due to medical reasons, the medical exemption issued by a Licensed Health Care Practitioner must be on file in the school office.
Facial coverings should be worn at all times including:
  • While on any school site or district facility
  • While on the school bus
  • While engaged in work and interacting in person with another person (if students are present and for those unvaccinated)
  • While working in any space visited by multiple people (if students are present and for those unvaccinated)
Acceptable forms of facial coverings include:
  • Cloth facial coverings (with two or more layers)
  • Disposable surgical masks
  • Facial shields WITH a drape
Facial coverings NOT allowed on campus include:
  • Bandanas 
  • Masks with exhalation valves or vents
