PLEASE ENSURE THAT IF YOUR CHILD WEARS A FACE MASK, IT IS CONNECTED TO A STRAP OR LANYARD TO AVOID DROPPING OR LOSING.
Look for a mask made with at least two layers of fabric. It should cover your nose and mouth without large gaps. The mask should have ear loops or ties so you can adjust it. For people who wear glasses, look for a mask with a bendable border at the top so you can mold the mask to fit the bridge of your nose and prevent your glasses from fogging.
Some gaiters are equipped with pockets for filters. The protective filter plays an important role in the protection of our students and staff.
*The filter has 5 layers with activated carbon sheet.
In general, if you wear a mask and maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet between you and other people when in public places, you do not need a face shield. Wearing a mask will help contain your respiratory droplets. A face shield or other type of eye protection may provide some additional protection from virus transmission.
