The Lyons schools will begin following newly released guidelines from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).

KDHE has recently released revised COVID guidelines for schools. The relaxed guidelines include a 5-day at-home quarantine and an additional 5 days of masking for a student or staff member who returns to school after an infection. 

Lyons schools will begin using these new guidelines from KDHE immediately. The Board of Education will review and discuss the guidelines at their regular board meeting on September 12.

The new guidelines do not require testing and masking for close contacts however, as is the previous set of guidelines although that is still recommended.
