JCPS Outdoor Mask Mandate Lifted

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.

Please note that this change also applies to our athletic events. Athletes and coaches are not required to wear masks when they are participating in outdoor contests. Spectators and athletes that are not involved in active play should continue to social distance when possible. If our guests are unable to socially distance, they are encouraged to wear masks even though they are not required.

We will continue to update you on how the changes in the Governor’s Executive Orders impact our school system.
