Hello Governor Mifflin families,

This afternoon, there is a flurry of information regarding the state’s mask mandate in schools. We are aware that the headlines of this story indicate an immediate change; however, we have been made aware that the appeals process and other legal processes will need to play out before there is a final resolution. The most direct information that we have received is from our district legal counsel, which has advised us to maintain our current masking procedures within our Health and Safety Plan. We expect all students and staff to continue following that plan as they have been throughout this school year. 

As this scenario develops, we will continue to provide updates and communications to help clarify any impact on our schools. Our Health and Safety Plan has been regularly reviewed by our administration and school board and we will continue to do so. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support and effort to help ensure a safe and healthy environment for learning.

Sincerely

Dr. Lisa Hess
Assistant Superintendent
Governor Mifflin School District
