Health and Wellness Update and Opt Out Process for Mandatory Masks

Friday, Aug 20, 2021

Dear A.D. Henderson and FAU High School Families,

As we have seen in our local and school community, we are experiencing an increase in positive COVID cases. Four more students tested positive this week and a number of students have been quarantined as a result.

As indicated in the Superintendent’s Message today, effective Monday, August 23, 2021, students will be required to wear a mask/face covering indoors unless a parent/guardian submits a Mask/Face Covering Opt Out Form in Focus for each of their children. Students who do not have a parent opt out approval form in Focus will be provided a mask and instructed to wear it indoors.  Students refusing to wear a mask and who do not have authorization in Focus to opt out, will be asked to wear a mask, if the student refuses, the parent will be contacted.
