Due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases and quarantines within the school population, the Brookfield Local School District will be requiring all students, staff, and visitors to wear masks while in district buildings, regardless of vaccination status, effective Monday, September 13, 2021 until further notice. Masks are also still required to be worn on school transportation.
Based on the current recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health, universal masking, along with other mitigation practices such as social distancing, hand washing, and sanitizing, provide our students with the best chance at being in school all day, everyday, five days a week. All of these measures also greatly reduce the need for quarantine if there is an exposure at school. We will evaluate the case count within the district and the community on a regular basis, and revise our policies when and as necessary.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we make this transition.
