Great Falls Schools has had a mask requirement in place as part of our school re-opening plan that was approved by our School Board in August of 2020. At this point the mask protocol for the District will remain in place until the CCHD has met and until the GFPS Board has had a chance to consider any recommendations that staff would bring before them, if any, for changes in our plan at the next regularly scheduled Board meeting.
