All students, staff, visitors, and patrons are required to wear an approved facial covering while inside LPS buildings. Masks must be worn at all times except when eating, drinking, or playing outside during recess and during physical education. Additionally, students may be able to lower their mask (with permission only) when a clear 6+ foot social distance can be maintained for an extended period of time.
The CDC has identified medical conditions for which wearing a mask may not be advisable. If you have questions regarding this please consult your physician. Unless a student is under the age of 5, a signed physician's order from a Medical Doctor (MD or DO only) will be required to be granted an exemption to the mask policy. The Health Services Department may grant a waiver to this requirement without a signed physician’s order for any previously documented physical respiratory condition (e.g., severe asthma) included in the CDC exemption guidance.
