ATTENTION CARDINAL FAMILIES:
The masking mandate was rescinded after a school board vote this evening, August 25, 2021. Effective immediately, masking indoors is not required. By federal mandate of the Center of Disease Control masking is still required on school transportation.

For further clarification, the district must follow the guidelines for quarantining and contact tracing. These guidelines are set forth by the Ohio Department of Health. The guidelines can be viewed on the school district webpage under announcements at cardinalschools.org

So again, the Cardinal Local Schools Mask Mandate for indoors has been cancelled. Students and staff are still required to wear masks on school transportation.
