Dear Warner Parents and staff,

On February 28th Governor Gavin Newson announced that after 11:59 p.m. on March 11, California, Oregon and Washington will adopt new indoor mask policies and move from mask requirements to mask recommendations in schools.  I know this is a politically sensitive topic in our country but I feel this move is positive as it will now give the family the choice of wearing a mask.  Masks are still highly recommended at schools and the school will continue to encourage social distancing, extra cleaning, providing masks, testing, contact tracing, and symptom screening.  I believe it is important that we honor everyone’s choice on whether they choose to wear a mask or not.  I encourage everyone to remain kind and respectful and appreciate the personal choices of our classmates and staff members.  As always if you have questions or concerns, please contact the district office at 760-782-3517.  Have a great weekend.
