Mask Mandate Update

Governor Ducey signed a budget that includes provisions that will affect schools and school funding throughout Arizona. One provision, specifically, has an immediate impact on students and staff at Madison Highland Prep. This provision “Prohibits, retroactive to July 1, 2021, a county, city, town, school district governing board or charter school governing body from requiring students or staff to use face coverings during school hours and on school property.” While this provision means that students and staff are no longer required to wear face coverings we encourage anyone who has not been vaccinated to follow the guidance of health officials by wearing a face covering. Anyone who chooses to wear a face covering for any reason has the option to do so at any time.
