Throughout the pandemic, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) has been implementing protocols to ensure the health and well-being of our students and employees. As a result of legislation signed today by Governor Ron DeSantis, effective immediately, facial coverings will no longer be mandatory in schools. Therefore, the parental opt-out form has been eliminated. M-DCPS will continue to encourage the use of facial coverings while indoors, and parents, at their sole discretion, may allow their children to wear them. Also, effective immediately, no asymptomatic student or employee will be required to quarantine simply due to exposure to COVID-19.

This website is designed to inform stakeholders of the District’s plans for the 2021-2022 school year. On this site, you will find information regarding District programs, policies, and procedures for the 2021-2022 school year.
