Green Local Schools has announced it will now require masks on school buses. This announcement is a change from original plans shared by the district at the start of the school year stating masks would not be required on buses and that the choice would be left to parents.   The statement also shares that in “a short period of time COVID cases have risen sharply throughout Ohio and in our school district.”   According to data shared on the district website, as of Sept. 8 a total of 39 positive cases of COVID have been reported throughout the district. A total of 13 cases have been reported districtwide since Sept. 5.

Parents may request an exemption by completing the mask exemption form listed on the district website.
