Dr. Robert Gilchick, with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, communicated the following guidelines regarding 

Face Coverings (distinct from medical grade Face Masks) for children:

Children under 2 are not to wear Face Coverings - the recommendations for children age 2 but not yet 3 is, so far conflicting, and confusing.  We will be following parent preference for our 24-36 month old children. 

Children ages 2-8 are recommended to wear Face Coverings provided they can do so properly, only with adult supervision, and must be allowed to remove them as they wish.

Children ages 8 and older are encouraged to learn proper Face Covering etiquette.

Diversity of culture, a rich tradition of excellence, and a caring eye to developmentally respectful practices has made Dove Day School a force in San Gabriel Valley Education since 1960.  Our strategies for success include a preschool that imparts a functional scholastic foundation and produces excited learners.  The grade school divisions are able to keep students in their maturity and social range with small learning groups and by providing enrichment or remediation as necessary.  Dove Day School's founders believed that a gifted educator takes the child in front of them and teaches that child.
