COVID-19 and Local Schools: Masks are Still Required

Written by on February 6, 2022

A couple of days ago, President of the Monroe County Council of School Superintendents and Rush-Henrietta Central School District Superintendent Bo Wright held a to discuss COVID-19 and the impact on local schools. One question that was on everyone’s mind was “can we get rid of the masks?” and the answer remains the same: masks are required. Some social media posts have recently been reported and are calling for “No mask Mondays” where students, teachers, and staff are encouraged to not wear masks at school. Wright said anyone without a mask, while they are still required to be worn, will be dealt with consistently as how schools have handled similar past situations.

Wright stated: “Schools and school leaders are required to have students mask…There were a handful of students who refused to mask, but most families understood the requirement is still the requirement and I expect the same on Monday. This isn’t a political issue for it. It’s a health and safety issue. As leaders, we are required to implement the guidance that comes from the state and it will be decided at the governor’s office or in the court system.”
