On July 24, the Mississippi Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Mississippi State Medical Association released their joint statement on school reopening.
We encourage you to read the statement carefully and note that it recommends:
- Delayed re-entry until at least September 1
- Mandatory masks
- Virtual option for all Mississippi children regardless of medical need
- Consideration of all possible options for providing in-person education services to children with IEPs and 504 Plans
