ST. CLOUD — A few weeks before the start of the school year, St. Cloud Area School District 742 puts the finishing touches to the rules.
At the council meeting on Wednesday evening, a number of changes to the student handbook were approved.
Starting this fall, headgear will be permitted for students in grades 6 through 12. According to the policy, headgear will be permitted provided it does not interfere with the learning environment. Additionally, staff may order students to remove headgear if it becomes disruptive.

In other changes:
- The “NC” grade used during the COVID pandemic will no longer be used. Instead, the “F” grade will revert for students who fail a class.
- COVID-19 adds to a list of diseases (chickenpox, RSV, etc.) that require parents to contact the school nurse to plan a return to school.
- Expectations for student and teacher activity during E-Learning and Flex Learning days are described in detail.
- A statement was added to reinforce the idea that tuition fees should not be a barrier to participating in an activity.
- Language has been updated to help provide clear instructions in security protocols.
