Precious GHAPS Families,

Based on new suggestions from the Ottawa Area Division of Public Health (OCDPH), the Michigan Division of Wellness and Human Provider (MDHHS) and also the Centers for Disease Control and also Prevention (CDC), the GHAPS Board of Education has voted to temporarily require masks inside your home for all K-12 students, team as well as visitors throughout college hrs as well as at the GHAPS Preschool/Open Door program.

The mask need does not apply to extra-curricular activities, consisting of athletics. Children 2 years old as well as younger, as well as individuals with an accepted written medical exemption, are exempt. Additionally, masks might be gotten rid of when people are more than 6′ from each other.

As soon as the COVID-19 danger degree in Ottawa County goes down right into the “modest” variety for seven consecutive days, we prepare for that K-12 masking will not be needed. As of August 13, OCDPH categorized the region’s COVID-19 threat level as “high” based on the portion of favorable examinations. As always, we will continue to be in close contact with OCDPH as problems change.

The Board acknowledges that masks are not perfect in a knowing environment, where communication as well as interaction are such a vital part of the academic process. However they believe this temporary K-12 mask need will certainly provide GHAPS the most effective feasible chance of proceeding in-person education and learning. District-wide consistency is likewise vital, offered the several families with students in different structures.

I understand that this choice rates by some and opposed by others. Wherever you stand, I request your proceeded patience and also understanding. We at GHAPS continue to be fully commited to Success for All and also we are happy for your important function in this goal.
