That’s why you should follow CDC guidelines and procedures, to protect yourself and others around you. To hopefully reduce your chances of contracting COVID-19 and its other rising variants, safety information is listed below.

While pulling your mask down to take a needed breath may seem tempting, you should always keep your mask on while near surrounding classmates.

If you see a really crowded space with lots of students, try to avoid passing through it by taking a different route.
