The North Platte School District must comply with this order.  The district will be impacted in the following manner:

*All staff members wear a cloth face mask whenever they are unable to properly social distance.  Staff will be instructed on specifics of this criteria.
*All students in grades 6-12 will be required to wear face masks where it is difficult to socially distance.  This will include bus routes, hallways and some classroom situations.  Exemptions are allowed for exercise times such as PE class and athletics, lunch/breakfast, and situations where social distancing is most feasible.  Teachers will work with students to provide as many mask-free situations and breaks as can safely and legally be allowed.  
*All students in pre-K-5 will be strongly encouraged to wear a mask but will not be required to do so.  
*All visitors who are in the building for any reason must wear a face mask.  
*This order will stand until altered or ended by the Platte County Health Department.
*Students and parents who have medical reasons to not wear a mask should contact their building administrator.
