SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW) – The Sandusky City School District is changing its policy on masks for students.
From Monday, September 13, all students must wear a mask inside buildings in the neighborhood. Teachers and staff must already wear masks since September 7.
The policy will be in effect until further notice.
The district said these changes were made to help keep children in school, minimize quarantine requirements and ensure that students in the district get the best educational experience possible as cases of COVID- 19 continue to increase.
They will have additional face coverings available in each of their buildings if students need them.
Dr Eugene Sanders, Managing Director and Managing Director, issued the following statement:
After looking at trends in COVID-19, it’s clear that requiring face coverings for students, as well as employees, is the best course of action to keep everyone safe. We will continue to review trends, data and district requirements throughout this year. We appreciate the whole Blue Streak family because they remain flexible throughout these transitions.
The district initially said students were not required to wear masks, but they were highly recommended. This raised questions among parents and students.
