Updated Masking Policy for the WVW School District


Beginning February 28, 2022, Wyoming Valley West School District will implement the new CDC Guidelines.  Masking will be optional for all students and staff in buildings and on school transportation.  

Masking will still be required when:

  • An individual who is identified as a close contact to a COVID-19 case but does not have to quarantine because they are either current with their series of vaccine doses or have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days. These individuals must wear a mask for 10 days from the day of last contact.
  • Individuals who were exposed to COVID-19 and must quarantine at home will also be required to wear a mask for days 6-10 upon their return to school.
  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and return must wear a mask for days 6-10 upon their return.
