PK-6 Required Indoor Mask Wearing
The Decorah Community School District requires students, staff, and partners in grades PK through 6 to wear a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended face mask in District facilities. This mandate remains in effect until four weeks after a COVID-19 vaccine is readily available in the community for children ages 5 to 11.
This step is being taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health of students, staff, their families, and the Decorah community. Wearing a face mask is a proven step to help meet that goal.
In a message to families, Superintendent Mark Lane shared, “Our PK-6 staff and students did an excellent job implementing the indoor masking requirement this week. As I visited classrooms throughout the week, I saw people going about business as usual. I am thankful for the way our District has remained focused on learning throughout the pandemic.”
