OSD School Reopening 2020
Face covering resources and tips for students
When school resumes for the 2020-2021 school year, all Olympia School District staff and students will be required to wear face coverings (exceptions listed below) while in school, or while riding a school bus, to meet safety requirements issued by the Washington State Department of Health and Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
