Eastern Pulaski School Corporation Superintendent Dara Chezem announced in an email to parents this week EPCSC has moved to a 'mask recommended' status due to reduced numbers of students and staff having COVID-19 or being quarantined.
In the future, if numbers reach 15% percent of students/staff quarantined/isolated in a given school, that school would move to a mask required status for two weeks. If the number of quarantines/isolations does not drop at the two-week mark, the percentage would be reviewed each additional week.
A color-coded dashboard will be created on their school website that will be updated weekly. If the dashboard is green, that indicates that less than 7% of staff/students are quarantined/isolated. Yellow indicates 7 to 14% of staff/students are quarantined/isolated. Red indicates 15% of staff/students are quarantined/isolated and masks will be required.
Masks will continue to be required on school buses as this is a federal mandate.
