Back To School Orlando 2021-2022
For some students and teachers, the first day of the 2021-2022 school year will also mark their first day back in a classroom since the coronavirus pandemic began.
A new school year always brings changes. Add a pandemic into the mix and parents and students are bound to have some questions about what to expect. Will masks and/or social distancing be required in the classroom? According to a spokesperson for the school district, the policy going into the 2021-2022 school year is that masks will be optional; however, as of the latest guidance, the CDC is recommending all students and teachers wear masks in the classroom, regardless of vaccination status.
The policy changes take effect on Aug. 2 on school campuses and buses, according to the district. The district policy also states, “In the event the CDC or other governmental entities issues updated guidance which mandates more restrictive face-covering requirements, the School Board authorizes the Superintendent to implement the more restrictive face-covering requirements in accordance with that guidance.”
Does my child need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to go to school?
COVID-19 vaccines are not mandatory for students to return to the classroom. In fact, many students are not eligible to receive a coronavirus vaccine. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 12 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against the virus. Right now, children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
