Health and Safety

We begin the new school year with a commitment to remain vigilant, keeping the health and safety of our students and teachers as our top priority. In that spirit, DoDEA unveiled a new version of its COVID-19 Operational Guidelines and Protocols for Schools, available here.

  • When possible, students will sit three feet apart in classrooms, and six feet at all other locations.
  • Students and staff who are not vaccinated will wear masks in schools and on buses. If an installation is at HPCON Alpha, vaccinated students and staff may opt to wear a mask when physical distancing can be maintained but are not required to do so. Masks are required on school buses.

Please plan for your child to wear a mask. The continued health and safety of our students and employees remain our top priority - we're all in this together!

Free Student Meals

We are committed to providing healthy and safe school meals to our students. That is why I am happy to announce the U.S. Department of Agriculture is extending free student meals for all students through June 2022. This extension provides children with healthy, nutritious meals for next school year, regardless of the instructional setting (in-person, remote, or virtual).
