Teachers will wear face shields at all times. These allow their faces to be seen. CDC, DHEC, American Pediatrics Society recommends that children who do not know how to properly wear masks should NOT wear masks (e.g. touching their face more, increases risk). Preschoolers are not required to wear masks. K-4th students will be asked to bring a cloth face mask or non synthetic cloth neck gaiter to wear in the hallways and when they are not able to practice social distancing during the day. They won’t need to wear them in the classroom when at their desks.
