April 10: Face Masks
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance regarding masks and recommended the end of mandatory mask usage in all areas of schools this past month. This week, Governor Kemp signed the "Unmask Georgia Students Act" bill which requires schools or districts to make face coverings an optional decision.
The Mitchell County School System recognizes that some students and staff may prefer to continue wearing a mask indoors, and we will support their individual choices. This decision will go into effect on Monday, April 11th, and will apply to all schools, extra-curricular activities, and bus transportation.
