September 10, 2021: Face Covering Update

Dear Rocket Families, 
 
As you know, the Spring Grove Area School District allowed for a grace period to the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s face covering order through September 10th. Please be advised, the District is extending the grace period through Monday, September 20, 2021, to provide additional time to our Rocket families who wish to complete and submit the Student Face Covering Exemption Request Form. 
 
For those who intend to submit a medical exception, please click HERE to access the form. You may also obtain a paper copy of the form from your child’s school building. In order for the District to process the exemption, parents/guardians must complete the Spring Grove Area School District form. No other forms will be accepted.  
 
In the interim of full implementation of the face covering order on Tuesday, September 21st, we will continue to highly encourage the use of face coverings. Any student who is not wearing a face covering while indoors in our school facilities will be provided with one and asked to wear it for the duration of their time inside the school building without fear of being sent home or disciplined. 
 
We continue to perform our due diligence in seeking clarity on the face covering order. In the meantime, we have updated and added to our Parent/Guardian COVID-19 FAQs on the district website. We will continue to share new information with you as appropriate. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Dr. George W. Ioannidis 
Superintendent
