The November 12 deadline reflects the first Friday that follows the next Board of Trustees Regular Meeting which will be held on November 10.

The requirement is in place in order to help ensure students remain in school by helping to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in the community.

In addition to the November 12 date, the Board will also revisit the mask requirement if one of two metrics are met. These metrics are:

  • If the county vaccination rate is at least 70%.
  • If the Wyoming Department of Health lists Albany County in its Yellow Zone (Moderate Transmission Level) for a continuous three-week period.

The District will continue to practice social distancing as much as possible, utilize increased ventilation, and promote handwashing in schools to help stop the spread of the virus.

See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
