Mask Breaks and Reminders


April 7, 2021 – Mask Breaks and Reminders

We want to remind families that all students, employees, contractors and visitors at Higley Unified School District are required to wear masks on campus and at school-associated activities. Executive Order 2020-51 and the emergency order from Arizona Department of Health Services AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 requires all school districts to have and enforce a face-covering policy. These protective measures set by the State Department are in an effort to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 within our community. We recognize that as we get closer to summer, temperatures in Arizona will continue to increase. We understand that with rising temperatures, it can be uncomfortable to wear a mask. To help ensure our students are comfortable and staying safe, we will continue to allow extended mask breaks outside at recess, with proper social distancing. Breaks will be taken under the guidance of your student’s teacher.
