Effective 5/20/21: Face Masks Are Optional In UCSD Schools / Still Required On School BusCreated on May 20th, 2021
In the early morning hours today, 5/20/21, Governor Reynolds signed HF 847 into law. One of the components of this law is that both public and accredited nonpublic schools are prohibited from mandating masks; this is effective immediately. In compliance with the law, the Urbandale Community School District has removed the mask mandate. Students and staff may continue to have the option to wear a face covering / mask at any time in our schools.
At this time, students riding on school buses provided by Durham Transportation are required to wear a face covering / mask. Because of a Presidential Executive Order on domestic transportation, we will be following this guidance at this time. Should we receive additional guidance, we will notify families immediately. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
