-Masks must be worn at all times on campus (this includes outside) by everyone regardless of vaccination status. Mask wearing will be enforced. 

-In PE only, students can choose whether or not to wear a mask while running laps. Mr. Van Dyke has final discretion on all masking parameters during higher intensity activities in PE.

-AR students who can log in to the CR App should finish the app health screening before they arrive for classes. First-years, non-CR students, and students who do not have a smartphone must find a health screener on campus to get a temperature check and a colored wristband before arriving at class.

Monday - Blue

Tuesday - Orange

Wednesday - Red
