Florida Chancellor of Public Schools Jacob Oliva sent the email below to all School Superintendents in Florida Monday, May 3, 2021, to inform them that neither of the Executive Orders recently enacted by Gov. Ron DeSantis regarding COVID-19 protocols impacts school districts or individual schools.
The School Board of Manatee County has already publicly noticed that it will review and amend policy 8450, regarding “Control of Casual-Contact Communicable Diseases,” as needed during the School Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
That being the case, all School District of Manatee County students and employees will continue to be required to wear face masks and follow other district COVID-19 protocols until further notice.
