Published 11:05 am Friday, December 17, 2021

The WS/FCS Board of Education has voted to extend the mandatory mask requirement into January. The board made the decision Tuesday night at its regularly scheduled meeting. Everyone will be asked to continue wearing face coverings inside of all district buildings, facilities, and transportation.

Masking will continue to be optional for indoor athletics and performing arts only while actively playing or performing. This is only for games and public performances. Masks remain mandatory during practices or while waiting to actively play or perform.

WS/FCS will monitor the number of cases and close contacts over the next month and report the findings at the Jan. 11, 2022, meeting. This is when the next monthly vote, as mandated by the governor’s order, will take place.
