Washington Local requires masks for students K-6

The Washington Local school board voted unanimously Wednesday, August 4 to mandate masks for students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

Masks will be required when those students are indoors. While there will not be a requirement, masks are highly recommended for 7th-12th graders.

All bus riders will be required to wear masks as well.

Board members wanted to make a decision at the August board meeting so families could prepare.
