Due to a rise in confirmed COVID cases as well as students being quarantined in recent days, Southern Local Schools will implement a mask mandate in all indoor spaces. Masks will not be required during outdoor activities. This mandate will begin Tuesday Aug 31, 2021.
The priority for the district is to maintain an in-person education for our students and recent events have led to a mask mandate in order to continue this. More than anything, we want to keep our students and staff safe, and we want to keep them in school. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and make adjustments accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.
