Wearing Face Covering

         Practice Putting your face covering On and Off. GFSD mandates all K-8 students and staff wear a face covering on the at school. Teach your child to not touch the inside of their face covering when taking it off and to not touch or play with the face covering while on. Consider having multiple face coverings to give you proper time to wash them between use. It is recommended to wash and dry face coverings daily.
