NEW YAKIMA HEALTH DISTRICT MASK REQUIREMENTS

Due to ongoing research by the Washington State Department of Health on the effectiveness of gaiters, the Yakima Health District, announced on February 9th that they no longer support or recommend the use of gaiters in schools (K-12).  The YHD now only recommends cloth or surgical masks.
 
Students who arrive to campus wearing a gaiter will be given a cloth or surgical mask from the school district.
 
We are asking that families make any needed adjustments to facial coverings as soon as possible
