Updated COVID 19 Masking Protocol

Updated COVID 19 Masking Protocol

Beginning Tuesday, October 26th, students in the Whitley County School District will be permitted to drop their masks when in the classroom and seated at a desk or table. Anytime a student is standing or moving inside of the school building a mask will be required. Examples of when students will be required to mask include:

  • When walking in the hallways to and from classrooms
  • Anytime a student leaves their desk in the classroom
  • During locker time
  • On the way to breakfast or lunch
  • When standing in lunch lines or lines at the water fountain
  • In restrooms
  • Entering and leaving the school building

The modified mask policy inside the school buildings does not change the current policy requiring students to wear masks when on buses per the CDC mandate. Anytime a student is riding a bus, a mask must be worn.
