Baker School District Expects to be mask optional by March 14

Baker School News

On February 28, 2022, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE)  announced another update to statewide and K-12 indoor face covering rules that will lift the current mask rule beginning Saturday, March 12, 2022, rather than on March 19 or March 31,  2022, as previously communicated. 

School districts were also notified that an updated Ready Schools Safe Learners Resiliency  Framework will be released on Wednesday, March 2, 2022. 

Baker School District leadership will be meeting with representatives from the local health department this week to fully understand the new guidelines. It is expected that masks will also become optional in District schools starting Monday, March 14, 2022, the first school day following the lifting of the statewide mandate.  

“We appreciate the ability to make decisions with our health department at the local level that we feel are best for Baker students, staff, and families,” said Superintendent Witty. “We remain committed to stricter health and safety protocols around medically vulnerable students and  support anyone who still wishes to wear a face covering once they become optional.”
