Students within the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) district are set to return to class beginning Wednesday, Aug. 19, under new safety rules and regulations outlined in EVSC's August reopening plan.

Part of EVSC's August reopening plan calls on students and staff to wear masks whenever social distancing isn't possible.

Now, EVSC has laid out guidelines on what those masks should and should not include.

According to EVSC, masks CAN be:

  • Any Color
  • College Logos
  • School District Logos
  • Simple Patterns
  • Student Name
  • Gaiters

However, EVSC says masks CANNOT include/be:

  • Slogans or Phrases
  • Vulgarities
  • Bandanas
  • Scarves

EVSC has also re-formatted its classrooms in an effort to make sure students are practicing social distancing when they return to in-person instruction in August.
