As we plan to welcome families back to Trinitas in the new year, we are preparing to return to the COVID response plan that we had published prior to the Kent County Health Department public health order regarding masks. The health department has made it clear to schools that it will let that order expire before our students return from Christmas Break. When we return to school, then, face masks will again be optional for everyone: staff and students, parents and guests. We will continue to be vigilant about spacing and ventilation, hygiene and illness screening. Thank you for reinforcing good hygiene habits at home and keeping at home students who exhibit any signs of illness.
