Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
The Gallatin City-County Health Department Board and Health Officer decided May 5th to allow the mask mandate to dissolve May 27, 2021, in Gallatin County. The Manhattan School District’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously at our regular May Board meeting to revise our back to school plan.
Beginning Thursday, May 13, 2021, the District is recommending wearing face coverings rather than requiring them district wide. Essentially, face coverings will not be required for students, staff, parents and visitors. Students, staff, parents and visitors can choose to continue to wear face coverings and will be supported in their choice. Principals are communicating the revision to the plan with their staff, and teachers will communicate the change to students. All other safety guidelines will remain in place. If you have concerns with this change, please contact your student’s principal. The remote learning platform remains available for any student and/or family with COVID related concerns.
Sincerely,Brian K. Ayers
