Mask Update 11/10/2021
November 10, 2021

Reynolds School Community,

Please read the entire message:

Today, a court ruling stated that the Secretary of Health Order for masking in schools was lifted. Shortly thereafter, an appeal was filed which placed a stay on the order until the appeal process takes place in court. The legal translation from the appeal court is that we must continue to follow the original order and enforce the mask mandate until further notice.

Please keep in mind that authority is slated to be handed back to local districts in mid-January, if not sooner once the appeal is ruled upon. 
Today was a step in the direction of the return of local board control and authority over this issue, but we must await the appeal process.

Again, I want to leave you with the following; we are educators and stewards of all of the children in this community. We did not choose to be in the middle of this, especially when we are trying to teach and care for our students. Please work with us to maintain the current course until further notice is provided.


Raymond C. Omer, Acting Superintendent
