Caution: Gaiters and Face Shields

CDC Does Not Recommend Gaiters or Face Shields

Caution: Gaiters and Face Shields

We would like to share with families that the use of gaiters or face shields are not recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Their effectiveness in preventing the transmission of COVID-19 is unknown at this time and is being evaluated. Students may wear a face shield in addition to a mask if they choose.

If families have children who can not wear a mask and can only wear a gaiter or face shield, please contact Superintendent Dr. Mary Yodis at 518-283-4600 ext. 10 so we can make accommodations.

Cloth face masks or face coverings that cover the nose and mouth and fit the face snuggly are recommended. The district has disposable facemasks for students who need them.
