Masks will be optional for Eau Claire Area School District summer school students and staff
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - The Eau Claire Area School District announced Thursday that starting June 14, masks will be options for all summer school students and staff.
Superintendent Mike Johnson says the decision allows the district to continue mitigation procedures and promote possible testing and screening to prepare for the fall. Adding that fewer people in the building compared to the normal school year, there will be more space for students.
Johnson notes that the policies for the September 2021 school year have not yet been decided and cases over the summer will also play into any decision.
