Earlier this month, the Middle Grove School Board officially approved a schoolwide mask mandate. However, Middle Grove has been implementing a mask mandate since it was first recommended earlier in the year. Middle Grove Superintendent Rena Roth says the students have been tremendous in following the mandate.
Roth adds that the student cooperation with the mask mandate is a direct reflection on their parents.
Middle Grove has only experienced a limited number of quarantines since the school year began. The district is currently on winter break until January 6th. Roth says the extended break will allow their custodial staff to perform a deep clean of the building.
The next Middle Grove School Board meeting is scheduled for January 13th.
