➢ Quarantine 14 days starting the day after your return to Maine,​ ​

➢ COVID19 PCR or antigen test done 3-5 days after return to Maine (minimum of a ​full
72 hours​ before specimen collected), ​AND
➢ Test results submitted to school nurse prior to return to the building or
extra-curricular activity

From Our Return to School Plan: Masks vs. Face Shields

Masks/face coverings are among the most critical components of risk reduction during COVID19 and we must be diligent with this step. Face coverings should cover your nose and mouth, and fit snugly against the sides of your face. Cloth face coverings should have multiple layers of cloth. Gaiters/buffs/bandana's are not acceptable face coverings. PK-12 Public Health Guidance (see page 6 of link).

Masks must be worn by all staff/students as outlined in the Winslow School Department Reopening Plan.. Exceptions can be made for students with a documented disability/health condition, which must be on file and accepted before an accommodation can be made. Students may be required to participate in the remote learning cohort if concerns regarding adherence to Maine law or in cases of an accommodation cannot be made.

If a student is wearing a face shield instead of a mask due to a documented medical/developmental issue, they can be in a classroom with others provided that they are able to maintain six foot distance from other students at all times. If they are not able to keep their distance then they should receive instruction in an alternate setting.
