The Reeds Spring School District reverses course and will re-instate its Mask Mandate on Friday for the remainder of the school year.
Information in a Facebook Post by the School District Wednesday Evening indicates that due to some positive COVID-19 cases over the last week, a large number of students had to be quarantined.
In its statement when they initially dropped the mandate last week, officials stated they would re-evaluate the decision if more cases developed. With the first cases in the school district since February, the district decided to reinstate the mandate to help keep the number of students needing to be quarantined down based on the recently revised guidelines from the CDC and Stone County Health Department.
Officials also state in the release that this action will help allow end of the year events to go on as scheduled.
