COVID-19 Dashboard

The 2021-22 EPASD American Rescue Plan (ARP) ESSER Health and Safety Plan was presented at the School Board of Directors Meeting on Wednesday, July 14. 
 
It was revised following new mandates and guidance and approved at the School Board of Directors Meeting on Thursday, August 5.  Both the Mask Guidelines and Mask Exemption Request Form can be viewed below.

One exception provided in Section 3 of the Order is if wearing a face covering would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability.

 

Please consult with your healthcare provider for advice about wearing cloth face coverings. We ask that you provide your school with a physician’s note if your doctor is recommending that your child does not wear a mask (please use the Mask Exemption Request Form).  Once you have completed the form, and provided this to your child's building principal, the principal and school nurse will review and request to meet with you to discuss your request and supporting documentation regarding your child's condition or disability.  This is an interactive process that may require the principal's request for additional documentation.  A determination will then be made concerning approval of your mask exemption request for your child.  This can then be communicated by the school, once approved, to your child’s teachers so they are aware.

Additional COVID-19 Related Information

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act requires each school district that receives funding under the ARP Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund to provide the opportunity for stakeholders to provide input about how the grant funds will be utilized and to develop a Health and Safety Plan for return to school in the fall.
