New CDC guidance allows Columbus Public Schools to ease protocols and procedures beginning June 1, 2021. We are using this coordinated approach through DHHS, CDC, and guidance from local health officials. The CDC has recently offered guidance for wearing masks for those who have been vaccinated and those who have not.

social distancing.
● Students will stay in their assigned groups and classes unless changes are made by the
teacher with the approval of administration.

have their parents sign a waiver, giving them permission to not wear a mask. Details will
