Loveland, Ohio – On August 11, the Loveland Board of Education adopted a face covering policy requiring masks for staff and students in grades PreK-12.
All students riding a Loveland school bus must be wearing a face covering/mask when boarding the bus, riding the bus, and departing the bus.
Face coverings/masks must be worn into the building at all times and only removed when directed by the teacher or staff member.
The Board policy states that face coverings/masks are “required and should”…
- Fully cover mouth, nose, and chin;
- Not create difficulty breathing while worn; and
- Be held secure through a tie, elastic, etc. to prevent slipping; and
- Be of effective quality (i.e., double-layered, non-permeable, tightly woven fabric without valves).
For the current time, this is the District policy, however, the Administration is also waiting on Ohio’s written orders for the full implementation guidelines of the face covering/mask policy for schools.
