MVCTC Parents and Guardians,
The MVCTC Board of Education took action on December 14, 2021, to rescind the face mask requirement on campus for students, staff and guests. This change will go into effect for students when they return from the holiday break on Tuesday, January 4. Even with the change to our face mask policy, please be aware that students and staff are still required to wear a face mask when they are riding on any form of district transportation. This is due to a federal order that has been extended until March 18, 2022.
Please understand that the district may need to return to a face mask requirement if there is a state or federal mandate. Also, if there is a sustained increase in COVID-19 cases, the Board may reinstate the resolution requiring masking for all students and staff.
The district will continue to strongly recommend that students and staff wear a face mask but will not require it. MVCTC will continue to provide face masks and hand sanitizer at common entrances. We will continue our enhanced cleaning protocols and the district will continue to encourage social distancing whenever possible.
Vaccination continues to be the preferred method of reducing the impact of COVID-19 but that continues to be a personal choice for each student and staff member. Please remember to keep your child home if they are showing symptoms related to an illness.
In closing, MVCTC has had a very successful first semester and we are all looking forward to continuing this trend for the second semester. As always, thank you for your flexibility and understanding. If you have any questions or need clarification, please feel free to email QUESTIONS@MVCTC.COM.
