Rescinded Mask Order for PreK-6th
01/25/2022
Dear MAPS Families, As I’m sure you’re aware, the Marquette County Health Department rescinded their September 20, 2021 order requiring masking for PreK-6th grade students while inside school buildings. Since our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response plan requires masks per this order, MAPS will default to our previous plan which states masks are strongly recommended for students while inside our buildings. Per the CDC, masks are still required for all students while riding the bus. Our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response plan will be updated and posted on our website as soon as possible. We will continue monitoring the situation and review the COVID-19 Preparedness and Response plan during our next scheduled Board of Education meeting on February 21, 2022. In the interim before our next BOE meeting, I plan to meet with our Back to School Committee to review the situation and make recommendations.
