COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines
SPPS will require masks for all people in a school setting (ages 2+), including all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Families should familiarize themselves with the SPPS COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines, which are updated regularly and cover prevention strategies, health screening and monitoring, and the SPPS COVID-19 Reporting System.
At Mays, we believe all human beings have gifts and everyone is needed for what they bring. Restorative Practices (RP) is at the heart of our positive school culture. Students, parents, and staff have the opportunity to participate in RP Circles on a regular basis.
