Boardman School Board Members unanimously approved a recommendation on Monday, September 27, to continue the indoor mask mandate until further notice. This will be enforced for all students, staff and visitors to our buildings during school hours.
In the first 20 days of school, the district saw a marked improvement in reducing the number of quarantines from positive COVID cases. Currently, the district is averaging one quarantine per positive case of COVID. On average last year, there were 5-7 quarantines per Covid case.
In addition to keeping students and staff safe, requiring masks greatly reduces the number of quarantines and allows students to stay in school for in-person learning.

We will continue to monitor case counts both statewide, and locally for an opportunity to reevaluate the need for the mask mandate.
