Updated Face-Covering Policy

Greetings Cohasset Families,

Attached please find the updated Cohasset Public Schools Face-Covering Policy, which was approved at today’s Special School Committee Meeting. The changes reflect the School Committee’s intention to have the policy evolve with any adjustments in guidance, and were prompted by recent changes to masking guidance at the state level. At this time, this revised policy allows for masks to be optional for all individuals attending or involved with the summer learning programs, as well as school in the fall. However, it does not preclude individuals wearing health related masks at any time in our buildings should they want to wear them. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will collaborate with the Department of Public Health (DPH) to issue any additional health and safety recommendations over the summer should they become necessary.
