As you are likely aware, yesterday afternoon the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Governor Andy Beshear announced a change to state and federal mask mandates that would no longer require fully vaccinated individuals to wear a mask in indoor or outdoor settings. While the new guidelines are a positive step in our fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic, there are certain limitations to the new Executive Order. K-12 organizations fall into a unique category of locations that will still require a mask regardless of vaccination status. Due to this mandate, all students, staff, and visitors to Warren County Public Schools will be required to continue wearing masks inside our schools and facilities. I want to thank our greater community for the continued cooperation in helping us adhere to state and federal guidelines as we keep our focus on our students. As always, we will continue to communicate updates with our families as we finish the remainder of the 2021 academic year.
