GODDARD – Masks will soon no longer be required in Goddard USD 265 facilities, but the change in policy will not happen until after the school year ends and graduations have been held.The district announced Tuesday that a mask mandate and other mitigation strategies will expire effective May 28.“Due to the dedication and commitment of our students, staff, and community, the district has been able to offer students and their families in-person, hybrid, and remote learning opportunities for the entire school year. We want to give a special thank you to all Goddard Public Schools staff and remote learning educators, long-term substitutes, certified nursing aids, and other additional COVID-19 support staff who worked to ensure students and families had a variety of learning opportunities during the pandemic,” the district said in an email statement.Goddard Public Schools become the second district in the TSnews coverage area to roll back mask requirements.
