Today, the following email was sent out to the FTIS community. 

FTIS Family,

As mentioned in the communication on February 4, 2022, based on our local experience we have determined that the Fort Thomas Schools will return to a mask optional COVID protocol when the number of active positive district cases are below 25 and the incidence rate in Fort Thomas (zip code 41075) per 100,000 is below 50.  As of February 9, 2022, both conditions have been met.  Therefore effective Thursday, February 10, 2022, the use of face coverings in Fort Thomas schools will be completely supported but the choice to do so will be considered optional.  

As required by federal mandate, use of masks will continue to be required for those on buses and district provided transportation.  In addition, those returning from isolations and quarantines will continue to be required to mask on days 6-10 upon return to school.  There may also be scenarios in which principals, in consultation with district leadership, will require temporary use of masks during spikes or unique circumstances.  Finally, please note, as we have stated throughout, we will be monitoring conditions and will respond accordingly should we see the opportunity for quality in-person instruction compromised.  

Thank you all for your continued partnership and support.  


Brian Robinson, Superintendent
