Welcome back Comets! I hope all of you had an awesome and relaxing summer break. We have been preparing all summer for your return and look forward to another exciting year.
It is my honor to be joining the Coventry team as superintendent. As I have transitioned to the district, I have been incredibly impressed by the dedication and focus on success by everyone in the district. I look forward to working with all of you to create new and exciting learning opportunities for our children.
As the 2021/2022 school year begins, I would like to take a moment to address the issue of face coverings (masks). It remains the position of the Coventry Local School District that the use of face coverings is permitted within our district buildings but is not required. While a number of COVID-related protocols (i.e. hand sanitizer availability, social distancing, etc.) will continue this year, we believe the use of face coverings should remain a personal decision.
There continues to be debate concerning the Presidential Executive Order requirement to use face coverings on conveyances/transportation. Thus, we will require the use of face coverings on school buses until we receive definitive legal guidance to the contrary.
Thank you for being an active partner in our growth as a district. From our classrooms to our athletic fields, it’s an exciting time to be a Comet!
