03-01-22 Updates Mask Mandates in Schools
03/01/2022
Redding School District Families, The Governor’s office provided a press release on February 28, 2022 that informed us that the state-wide mask mandate for indoor masking at schools for students will no longer be required after March 11, 2022, but is strongly recommended. Our first school day without masks being required for students will be Monday, March 14, 2022. I ask for your continued support of the current masking mandate through March 11, 2022. If you or your child would still like to wear masks, your child can wear a mask at any time while at school. We will support the choice for your family. ● The school indoor mask mandate will expire for all students at the end of the day on March 11th. ● March 14th will be the first school day with no state requirement Schools will still be practicing good hygiene and frequent handwashing. We will also continue to use the group contract tracing protocols to notify students and families when they may have been exposed to a classmate who tested positive for COVID-19. We will provide further information as it becomes available. Please let us know if you have any questions. As always, the Redding School District is committed to serving all of our students and making learning the highest priority. We appreciate the support throughout the many months. Let's continue to work together for our community by showing love, empathy, and a welcoming spirit. Sincerely, Robert Adams Superintendent Redding School District

Letter to Families 02-14-2022
02/14/2022
Dear Redding School District Families, I would like to thank our families for the continued support and efforts to put childrens' needs in front of your own. We at the Redding School District know that it has been difficult at times to continue with the many processes that the State of California has put in place for us to follow in regards to COVID-19. It is with a heartfelt thank you for your continued support regardless of your personal choices. It’s during times like this where we have the opportunity to lead with kindness and be at our best to serve others. There are those who feel that wearing a mask gives no benefit and there are those who feel it provides them safety. We are a district that works very hard to work with all of our families. On February 15th, tomorrow, the indoor mask requirement will end for vaccinated individuals while in many public spaces outside of school. While this does not mean a change for schools, it is understandable the difficulties this makes for families and perhaps some confusion for students. The announcement today by Dr. Mark Ghaly, Secretary of California Health and Human Services, did not specifically end the masking mandate for schools, but it did give us a date, February 28, 2022, to know that a change is coming if the data continues to track down as they predict. It seems that masking will be optional in the near future. We need to work together to provide a school environment that is safe for all. California is still emphasizing safety measures in schools. We ask for your patience in maneuvering through the mask mandate in our schools. We still need to wear masks at school and that disappoints some and gives relief to others. Let us continue to partner together in keeping kids in school as California is moving towards a change in COVID-19 school guidance. Children need to be in school. Please help us work together on this. School staff are community members who hold a wide range of beliefs and are also professional educators who are obligated to follow the rules and laws that they are given. Let us honor school staff by recognizing that as public employees, they follow the guidance provided by the State of California. Again, thank you for your continued efforts to help keep our schools a location of learning. We want to focus our daily efforts on planning and implementing great instruction each day. Robert Adams Superintendent
