On Thursday March 3, 2022, a "Masking Recommended" policy will take effect in our religious education program.  Beginning on this date, masks will be recommended, not required.  Between now and then, we can plan and monitor the factors which influence making rationale.  Of course, after the transition, there will still be a reason to require a mask such as when an individual contracts COVID-19 or if someone has encountered a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19.  Obviously, if a spike in cases in the community returns, so will the mask requirement policy.  Please discuss this in your families and in the classroom so we may all be informed and understood.  All other measures will remain in place, including, proper hand hygiene, regular cleaning and disinfecting procedures and proper distancing as classroom space allows.  Anyone who is sick or symptomatic should remain at home.  Thank you for your cooperation!
