Mitchell School Board approves facemask requirement

Face masks will become mandatory in Mitchell School District buildings starting Wednesday. The Mitchell School Board voted 5-0 to change its Safe Return to Schools protocol. The majority of those attending disagreed with the decision.

Jeff Sand told the board it’s not so much about masks as it is about mandates….

Parent Amy Stemper agreed with the plan….

Opponents loudly derided the decision.

The Board will review its decision at its November 8th meeting.
