1.31.22 Masking Update

Dear Woodland Community, 

 

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we walk together through managing COVID at Woodland. After Christmas break, the move back to masking helped keep more teachers and students at school teaching and learning, so we thank you. The support of the Woodland community is second to none! 

 

Due to the decline in cases at Woodland, in Shelby County, and the successful management of COVID at Woodland over the last month, Woodland will no longer require masking in most circumstances beginning Tuesday, February 1st. However, Woodland does continue to recommend masking at this time. Per the recommendations of the Tennessee Department of Health and the CDC, there may be instances where students, to continue attending school, are required to maskFaculty and staff will continue to mask through the next two weeks when working closely with students. In addition, our School Nurses will continue to notify the class or grade cohort of positive cases that may have been infectious at school. 

Since August of 2020, the top strategy to reduce the number of cases at Woodland is to monitor your students for symptoms and keep them home if they are not feeling well. Please continue to be diligent with symptom monitoring each day, and if you have any questions about sending your student to school, please reach out to our school nurses at nurse@woodlandschool.org, before attending school.
