Dear Parents,

You may have heard the recommendations announced yesterday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxing face-covering guidelines for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, suggesting they may be removed in most but not all indoor and outdoor settings.
While this is encouraging (and exciting), it’s important to remember that we are still required to comply with state and local health orders, which have not yet relaxed their requirements on face-covering guidance for indoor settings or for schools. Until that time, Grace will continue to adhere to state and local requirements, which continue to require the use of face coverings by all individuals while at school.
We will continue to monitor the state’s guidance as they are likely to make changes in response to the CDC’s recommendations, and will keep you posted on any changes that impact school operations. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
Have a great weekend!
In Him,
Ben Elliott
Superintendent
