Why are we still masking? 

Recently, the Andrew County Commission allowed the county mask mandate to expire. However, we still require masks on all SR3 campuses.  Why? 

On November 12, 2020, Governor Parson announced that the Missouri Department of Health and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education had changed the guidance around schools and contact tracing.  Under this current guidance from the state, when all parties are appropriately wearing masks, close contacts exhibiting no symptoms will be allowed to attend school during their quarantine.  

SR3 will continue to ask all students and staff members to wear a mask until this guidance changes.
