Now Trending: Masks! Please make sure your mask meets the latest requirements from Public Health Madison & Dane County. According to the county mandate, cloth face coverings must be made with two or more layers of breathable fabric that is tightly woven (i.e., fabrics that do not let light pass through when held up to a light source). A face covering does not include bandanas, single layer neck gaiters, masks with exhalation valves, face shields, goggles, scarves, ski masks, balaclavas, shirt or sweater collars pulled up over the mouth and nose, or masks with slits or punctures. If you arrive at school without an approved face covering, a staff member will provide you with a paper mask. Improve the fit and efficacy of your mask with these two CDC supported hacks

Layer up! Two masks can be better than one when worn correctly. 
Layer a cloth mask over a disposable mask to make the paper mask fit more snugly. 
Don’t layer two disposable masks; this method can actually lead to a worse fit than one mask. 

COVID Self-Screening Checklist: Please continue to complete the COVID self-screening checklist before coming into the school building each day. If you meet any of the criteria for exclusion, do not come into the school building and contact the school nurse, Rikki Conwell, at 608-653-1023 or, on school days or the on-call district nurse at on non-school days.
