Menomonie School Board Special Meeting 8/25/2021

This morning Superintendent of Schools Joe Zydowsky posted the text of the masking resolution that will be voted on in tonight's meeting:

The School District of the Menomonie Area board will hold a special meeting at 6:30 on Wednesday   in the Menomonie High School to re-consider requiring masks for all students in K-12 education in the district. There may also be a consideration of bringing contact tracing for the shools back into the school district rather than the Dunn County Public Health Department.

II. ACTION AGENDA

A. Action to Update the SDMA COVID-19 Plan

The board passsed the change to the COVID-19 plan.

B. Action to Approve Indoor Masking Order

The board voted 5-4 to amend that masking order to recommend the use of face coverings rather than strongly suggest.  This essentially makes the new policy not much different from the old one.  Masks will be optional and up to the parents of the students even if the new masking order passes. 

After some discussion Supt. Zydowsky recommended the board table the new masking plan indefinitely since it is no longer a masking plan at all, and have the policy revert to the previous optional masking policy. The board voted unanimously to table the new masking policy, so the previously voted policy applies.
