Removal of Mask Mandate Form

Pursuant to Executive Order No. 2021-23, issued by Governor Henry McMaster on May 11,2021, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has developed this standardized form to provide consent for or on behalf of a student in any public school in the State of South Carolina to opt out a student from a face covering requirement imposed by any public school official or public school district pertaining to school operations
and facilities.

After a thorough review of Executive Order 2021-23 by our General Counsel, we are prepared to move forward with our best good-faith effort to reconcile these conflicting directives.  The opt out will take effect Thursday, May 13 if the signed/completed form is returned to school by students, dropped off in the front office by parents, or submitted to the principal electronically.
