Policies to be addressed again Monday
HAYSVILLE – In a Sept. 7 meeting, the USD 261 Haysville Board of Education voted to maintain the current status quo for COVID-19 protections, which includes having masks be optional for USD 261 students and staff.That policy was adopted in July and reaffirmed last week. There were five votes to maintain the policy, with one vote against and one abstention.The status of masks and other precautions will be addressed at the next board meeting, set for 7 p.m. Monday.The district currently is requiring all visitors to district buildings to wear masks.Other options that were considered at last week’s meeting included requiring all students and staff to wear masks; to adopt different mask policies by school level, for example at the high school or middle school level; to require masks at specific buildings; to have to mask policies; and to adopt other mitigation strategies.Also last week, the BOE approved on a 6-0 vote the hiring of four registered nurses and two CLASS para-professionals. The para-professional positions will be temporary and paid for by ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) funds.
