As you may have heard, the Maine CDC and the Maine Department of Health & Human Services recently updated their guidance around universal masking in childcare facilities. Effective Wednesday, March 9, 2022, universal masking for students will be optional at Islesboro Preschool.
Our staff have agreed that they’d like to continue to mask through the end of March, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation and make changes as necessary.
This change is dependent on continued stability in COVID-19 trends in Maine. Additional information, including updates to isolation and quarantine guidance, will be provided once we receive further guidance.
We want to keep everyone as safe as possible AND are also well aware of the benefits of beginning a transition back to normal.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
