While Governor Walz announced an end to the statewide mask requirement on Thursday (5/13), PCYC would like to clarify to our students and families that for the remainder of the school year, we will continue to require everyone to wear masks indoors in our schools, buses and other PCYC buildings.
This is aligned with the position of Minneapolis Public Schools, the Minnesota Department of Education, and also Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s statement on Thursday that he will keep the City’s current mask policy in place until a full review of local vaccination rates are considered in consultation with health experts. (See Minneapolis’ full mask mandate No. 2020-12.)
We will continue to update families and staff as more information comes out from local, state and federal health agencies.
