Use of Face Masks/Coverings

The health and safety of students, staff, and volunteers is paramount to the School. For this reason, and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and guidance from the Ohio Department of Education, the School will comply with this policy for the 2020-2021 school year.

 The School will follow the mandates and requirements set forth by the federal, state, and local governments, the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”), Ohio Governor, Ohio State Department of Health, local county health department, Ohio Department of Education, and other applicable entities (“Directing Entities”) as it relates to the protecting the health of students. If any of these Directing Entities or the School administration requires staff, students, and/or visitors to wear face masks/coverings while attending school, reporting to work at a school, or visiting a school, the School will follow and enforce such directives.

 Pursuant to COVID-19 Health and Prevention Guidance for Ohio K-12 Schools, issued by the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Education in July 2020, all School staff members and volunteers must wear face masks/coverings unless, as determined in the sole discretion of the School, it is unsafe to do so or where doing so would significantly interfere with the learning process.

 It is strongly recommended that all students wear face masks/coverings while at School unless they are unable to do so for a health or developmental reason.

 To the extent that the School provides transportation services for its students, students shall be required to wear face masks/coverings while being transported on school buses. If a student receives transportation services through a school district transportation provider that requires face masks/coverings, the School will follow and enforce such directives, to the extent permitted by law and state and federal guidance.

 In implementing this policy, consideration should be given for the age and developmental level of the child and the physical situation the child is in at that moment. Face masks/coverings are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult.

 At minimum, face masks/coverings should:

  • Be cloth/fabric; and
  • Cover an individual’s mouth, nose, and chin.

 In addition, it is strongly recommended that face masks/coverings:

  • Fit snugly against the side of the face so there are no gaps;
  • Not create difficulty breathing while worn; and
  • Be held secure through either a tie, elastic, etc. to prevent slipping.

 Face masks/coverings shall not include masks designed to be worn for costume purposes, and all face masks/coverings shall meet the requirements of the appropriate dress code policies and code of conduct. Procedural and surgical masks intended for health care providers and first responders should be reserved for appropriate occupational and health care settings.

 Face shields that wrap around the face and extend below the chin can be considered as an alternative, in the sole discretion of the School, where cloth face masks/coverings would hinder the learning process.

 Exceptions to this policy may be made for the following:

  • Anyone who has trouble breathing;
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face mask/covering without assistance;
  • Individuals who have received approval from the School after discussing their request not to wear a face mask/covering due to a physical, mental or developmental health condition, if wearing a mask would lead to a medical emergency or would introduce significant safety concerns.

 Exceptions to this policy may also be made, in the sole discretion of the School, when:

  • Facial coverings in the school setting are prohibited by law or regulation;
  • Facial coverings are in violation of documented industry standards;
  • Facial coverings are not advisable for health reasons;
  • Facial coverings are in violation of the school’s documented safety policies;
  • A staff member works alone in an assigned work area;
  • Facial coverings will significantly interfere with the learning process;
  • There is a functional (practical) reason for a staff member or volunteer to not to wear a facial covering in the workplace.

 The School is required to provide written justification to the local health officials, upon request, explaining why a staff member is not required to wear a facial covering in the School.

 If any of the above exceptions are applicable, the request for such exception must be submitted in writing to the staff member’s supervisor, or in the case of a student, to the School Principal or his/her designee, and a decision on the request will be provided in writing by the School. An individual may, on a case-by-case basis, be required to wear a face shield or other face mask/covering as appropriate for an accommodation of this facial covering requirement. The School may also discuss other possible accommodations for the student or staff member. Such discussion shall follow School policies and procedures under Section 504 and the ADA.

 Any school nurse or staff member who cares for individuals with COVID-19 symptoms must use appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”), provided by the School, in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) or Public Employment Risk Reduction Program (“PERRP”) standards***.

 If face masks/coverings are required, and no exception has been applied, students and/or staff who violate this policy shall be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the applicable Student Code of Conduct/Student Discipline Code, staff handbook, and in accordance with policies of the School.

 ***Note regarding this policy: the Board shall comply with PERRP and OSHA requirements for all Board employees. However, School staff members employed by a management company are subject only to OSHA requirements and are not subject to PERRP requirements provided above.
