Mask Policy Update!
Hello Jack and Jill Community,
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate the ever-changing guidelines surrounding COVID-19. I would like to share the new mask policy at Jack and Jill Preschool which aligns with the regulations and protocols set by The Department of Early Education and Care and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Effective, Monday, March 7, 2022 masking will be optional for all students and staff regardless of vaccination status inside of Jack and Jill Preschool. While masking will be optional, I want to be clear that any person within the Jack and Jill community who chooses to continue to wear a mask will be fully supported in this decision.
There will be a number of occasions where masking will be required.
· Masking will be required in the office if a child is experiencing any illness symptoms.
· Masking will be required for days 6-10 following an individual’s 5-day isolation from a positive COVID case.
· Masking will be required for anyone who is identified as a close contact for 5 days.
Additionally, as of March 7th we will no longer require the daily health screen. Please continue to monitor your child for signs of any illness and keep them home when they are ill.
Please be aware that this policy is subject to change if the positivity rate in our area increases.
