Poland Local Schools to follow “Mask to Stay, Test to Play” Guidelines from Ohio Department of Health

 

POLAND, Ohio - Effective Monday, November 1, 2021, Poland Local Schools will be following the “Mask to Stay, Test to Play” guidelines released by the Ohio Department of Health on October 25.

Students, staff, and visitors will no longer be required to wear masks during instructional hours, but masks are still strongly recommended by the district.

The guidelines allow direct contacts of COVID-19 to remain in school if they wear a mask/face covering for fourteen days from the initial contact, regardless of their mask/vaccination status during exposure. If they start to exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, they must start testing and isolation procedures.

If a close contact is involved in extracurricular activities and is asymptomatic, they can continue to participate. However, they must wear a mask when able, test on initial notification of exposure, and test again on days 5-7. All tests must be proctored and cannot be self-administered.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

MASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED ON BUSES AT ALL TIMES.
THIS INCLUDES EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND ALL SCHOOL EVENTS.

Failure to wear a mask on buses could result in the following consequences:

 

  • 1st Offense:    Student Meeting with Principal / Warning
  • 2nd Offense:   Letter Home to Parents
  • 3rd Offense:    1 Day Suspension from Bus
  • 4th Offense:    3 Day Suspension from Bus
  • 5th Offense:    5 Day Suspension from the Bus
