What are our Safety Protocols?

On August 9, 2021, the Butler County General Health District, along with the City of Hamilton Health Department and City of Middletown Health Department, released a joint statement recommending universal masking in K-12 schools.

We know the majority of our students learn best when they are in a classroom setting and we are determined to keep our buildings fully open for themDue to the strong recommendations by our medical professionals, the Middletown Board of Education determined it is in the best interest of our students and staff that all Middletown City Schools require facial coverings inside our buildings for all K-12 students, staff, and visitors. This requirement will go into effect on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. 

If all students, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, wear the required face mask, our students can remain in the classroom. Following contact tracing, high risk exposed individuals will not need to quarantine since they will be wearing a face mask during the school day.
