I hope this communication finds you and yours well rested and relaxed from February recess.
Late Friday, the CDC announced that, effective February 25, 2022, it is no longer requiring that masks be worn on school buses or vans for K-12 students and children in childcare programs. Schools and districts may decide whether to lift or maintain local mask requirements on buses or vans. As such, “masks are optional” on buses and vans for students of the Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District - effective immediately.
As always, any individual who wishes to continue to mask should be supported in that choice - in a respectful and responsible manner.
More information on the updated CDC guidance is available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/face-masks-public-transportation.html.
We look forward to an outstanding spring of 2022; and cannot wait for everyone to return to school tomorrow, Monday, February 28th. As always, we thank you for your support and partnership of the Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District!
Paul S Haughey, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
