Mask Mandate Update 4.14.22

  • April 14, 2022

    Dear CPS Families, 

    Last night, the School Committee voted to lift the mask requirement in schools. Effective on Monday, May 9th, masks will be optional in school buildings and on buses.  Mask wearing will remain mandatory for any person visiting our school health offices, and anyone returning to school from a five-day quarantine following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. 

    Our schools will be a mask friendly environment beginning on May 9th.  Students and staff may choose whether to wear a mask or not. Teachers will be prepared to provide lessons to students on how to empathize with their classmates regarding personal mask decisions, and respect everyone’s choices.
