GRAYSON COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students at Grayson County Public Schools will not be required to wear masks at school during the 2021-2022 academic year, the superintendent announced Monday.
In a Facebook post on Monday, July 26, Grayson County Public Schools Superintendent Kelly B. Wilmore announced that masks will be optional at schools.
However, because of a federal mandate, masks will be required for students riding the bus.
In addition, coronavirus protocols like checking temperatures and extra cleaning will continue, according to Wilmore. Rapid COVID-19 tests will also be made available in schools.
If a student ends up being quarantined, they will not have to switch to virtual learning. Instead, their work will be sent home by their teacher — just like if they were out sick — for 10 days, unless other arrangements need to be made.
