Updated Mask Mandate News


Officially, New York State has issued guidance that allows students and staff to remove masks during outdoor activities; however, masks remain mandatory inside school buildings. The health and safety of students is our priority. The indoor mask mandate remains in place for all faculty, staff, and students through the end of the school year.

WAJ has adjusted our rules regarding the requirement to wear masks when outdoors to reflect the new guidance in which students and staff now have the option when outside to remove their masks. Students should still practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible.
