Mask/Face Coverings Q&A and Resources

Q: Is everyone required to wear a mask at MLHS?

A: Students, teachers and staff members will be required to wear masks at all times while in the building.  There are some times when masks won’t need to be worn.  Examples of that are for certain medical reasons, or when a teacher or staff member is alone in their own workspace.  We will be considerate of the discomfort that wearing a mask all day can bring, and so we will be thinking of ways that we can allow for some relief for that on occasion.  Parents—for any special requests you may have, please let our administration know ahead of time so we can consult with you about that.  Otherwise, in general, we will view this requirement as we view all other school rules, which means we will consider it as part of our ongoing ministry with our students. 

Q: What if I do not have a mask?
A:
The school can provide masks to any students who need one. Students who use their own are reminded that the mask is considered a “dress code” item and should follow the guidelines that already exist for that.

Q: Do I have to wear a mask during extracurricular activities or events?
A:
 The requirement for wearing masks inside does apply to all activities.  Therefore, we will need to apply this requirement to extracurricular activities and events as well.
