HS Masks Required

Adults are expected to wear a face covering (mask) every time they drop off and pick up their child from Head Start

Please make sure your child has a clean and dry face mask every day they attend school. If your child does not have a clean and dry face mask, we will provide one at school.

Head Start follows the public health recommendation and asks that everyone three years and older wear a face mask when you are indoors and not with people from your household and when a six-foot distance is not possible (this includes outdoors).

Wearing face masks properly requires a “snug” fit where the mask covers your nose and mouth with no “gaps” on the side or above your nose. If your mask becomes moist/dirty, replace your mask with a clean one.

For more information about wearing face masks go to https://covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance.
