Mask Wearing

Any face covering is better than nothing and the requirement is for a “facial covering”, no specification regarding what type.  According to the CDC, an appropriate facial covering has multiple layers of fabric.  Neck gators are not recommended unless they can be folded over to have multiple layers covering the mouth and nose.

•            Neck gators are usually a single layer of cotton or synthetic materials.  The material is thin and stretchy, which means a decreased ability to contain droplets.  Anything stretchy will be worse as the size of the “filter” will get bigger and less effective.

•            Two layers of tightly woven cotton, such as quilting fabric or cotton sheets are preferred for cloth face coverings.

According to the CDC, an appropriate mask:

•            Fits snugly but comfortably against the side of the face

•            Completely covers the nose and mouth

•            Is secured with ties or ear loops

•            Includes multiple layers of fabric

•            Allows for breathing without restriction

•            Can be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

Picture of a Raven for All Hallows READ
All Hallows READ All Hallows READ Mancelona Middle School is excited to host the 7th annual All Hallows’ READ initiative for the month of October, offering students grades 5-8 an opportunity to experience “spooky” stories brought to life on the silver screen on Friday, October 30th, 2020. Throughout the month of October, students at MMS will be celebrating the tradition of storytelling by reading, writing, and sharing scary stories in their ELA and Reading Encore classes. While the initiative is NOT Halloween-related, we are encouraging students to give the gift of reading to others during the season associated with giving away tricks and treats. And what could be better than candy, but a lifelong gift of imagination and entertainment? On Friday, October 30th, 2020 students in grades 5-8 will be receiving complimentary cider and doughnuts to enjoy during the All Hallows READ film event.
