The Klamath County School District will no longer requirethe wearing of masks during outdoor school activities, including recess.

Last week, the Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority revised the statewide outdoor face covering rule for K-12 schools. Under the new rule, school districts are allowed to decide whether masks are required or optional during outside activities.

At KCSD, outdoor mask wearing will now be optional; however, students, staff, and visitors are still required to wear masks inside schools and district buildings. We ask that everyone continue to be respectful of how they interact with others, keeping health and safety in mind.
