Candalaria Families,

The district has updated our safety measures to reflect new guidance on students wearing face coverings outdoors, including recess, PE, brain breaks, etc.

The new RSSL guideline about masks requires that all individuals 5 years of age and older wear a face covering outdoors when individuals cannot or do not consistently maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from people not in their household. As we all know, this is very hard to maintain for a 6-year-old playing in the play structure, walking with a group of friends or playing a basketball game a recess. Starting September 17th, all students in all elementary schools must wear masks outside during recess unless an adult is supervising an activity or game that can be accomplished with at least 6 feet of distance.

Candalaria staff will also be wearing face-coverings outside. Families, please also follow and model this guidance when you are outside, yet on the Candalaria campus, as well.

Thank you for your continued support of our students’ health and safety,

Jason Gundlach
