HBCSD is excited to welcome students back to our campuses on Monday, October 26, 2020 for elementary school students and on Monday, November 2, 2020 for middle school students. The district has released a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document that covers COVID-19 Health Guidelines, Practices, and Responsibilities to help families prepare for the safe return to schools.
In the "Health Practices" section, the district provides an update to the student face mask policy. The CDC advises that the use of face masks, when worn properly, has proven to be the best practice to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. As such, it is mandatory that all HBCSD students, in all grade levels (TK-8th), wear a face mask while on campus during in-person learning.
