CDC Updates and School Policy
Based on recent CDC public health guidelines, Community School will continue to adhere to our existing health and safety protocols for the 2021-2022 school year. (CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to schools, regardless of vaccination status.) We also encourage families to vaccinate their children ages 12+ to further slow the spread. https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/covid-19-vaccine/
