Parents and students can ask state officials of facemask requirements
The Oregon Department of Education will hold a special listening session on Tuesday, August 17th at 6 PM. The Facebook Live event will explain ODE’s requirement of facemasks in the 2021-22 school year and will give parents a chance to ask questions.
Last week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown made the announcement. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) adopted a statewide rule requiring face coverings for all individuals two years and older in all indoor school settings (both public and private). This rule defines schools as a public, private, parochial, charter or alternative educational program offering kindergarten through grade 12 or any part thereof.
