MASKING MANDATE TO BE LIFTED As of Saturday, March 12, 2022, indoor masking in TK-12 schools will no longer be required for students and staff. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals are included in the removal of the masking requirement. The Los Angeles Department of Public Health aligned masking guidance to the California Department of Public Health criteria, shifting masking to “…strongly recommending indoor masking at childcare sites and TK-12 schools.” Staff and students in Keppel schools will be able to be unmasked beginning Monday, March 14, 2022. However, if another surge or severe variant is encountered, actions may be reinstated by State and County officials to protect the health and safety of individuals.
Reminder: March 18, 2022 is a Minimum Day. Also, Spring Break is March 21, 2022 to March 25, 2022 and is a non-student week. Enjoy your holiday break! Schools will resume their normal schedules on March 28, 2022.
Many of you may have seen the news and understand that California is slated to lift the mask mandate in schools later this month. All Superintendents in Los Angeles County have a meeting tomorrow, March 1st, with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Los Angeles County Office of Education staff, in which we will hear and discuss the newest information on masking. As soon as the district receives clarification based on the CDC, State, and County's information, we will communicate the changes to students’ families. We are hopeful to have information to share by this Wednesday. Thank you for your continued patience as we endeavor to keep our students, their families, and our staff safe as we continue “Opening Doors to Infinite Possibilities" in Keppel. Sincerely, Dr. Cardenas (Chief Door Opener/Superintendent)
