By: Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – With over 43,000 students, parents, and staff taking the return to school survey, Pinellas County Schools completed a draft reopening plan.

The draft states that masks/face coverings must be worn by all students, staff, and individuals on campus, to the maximum extent possible, in hallways, common areas, classrooms, cafeterias (when not eating), during small group instruction, and anywhere social distancing is not possible.


• Students and staff will receive instruction on the proper way to wear a mask/face covering.
• Masks/face coverings must adhere to standards as outlined in the student dress code
• Student’s name must be written in permanent ink on their mask or face covering to avoid cross
contamination
• Individuals (students or staff) who have a medical condition that does not allow for wearing a mask
must provide medical documentation
