Lamar Mask Policy Changes (Monday) 10/25/21
As you may already know, the Lamar School Board met on 10-20-2021 in Special Session to discuss our current mask policy. Starting Monday, October 25th, the Lamar School District will transition to new protocols for masking of employees and students; they will be optional. Masks are strongly encouraged for all adults and students in the Lamar School District. Masks must be worn on buses. If a building reaches a 2% positivity rate in student and staff positive cases, or if a building reaches 10% in student and staff quarantine cases, a two week mask requirement will go into effect for the entire building. The definition of a close contact in a K-12 school has changed from with-in 6 feet for 15 minutes to with-in 3 feet for 15 minutes during a 24 hour time frame. All “do not have to quarantine” guidelines are still in effect. If both the case and the close contact are wearing masks properly, you will not have to quarantine.
