As Wayne County Schools prepare to return to in-person classes on September 28, students and parents need to be aware of requirements related to masking. All students in grades 1-12 will be required to wear a mask at all times, except when eating or drinking. This requirement is a result of updates to the Healthy at School guidelines issued by the Kentucky Department of Education and Kentucky Public Health. Masks remain optional for preschool and kindergarten students during in-person instruction.
K-12 students who ride the bus will be expected to wear a mask at all times while on board. Preschool students will not be required to mask during their preschool route bus ride.
