The Clear Creek Amana School Board voted 5 - 1 September 14th at a special board meeting to not require masks at school and wait until the final ruling from the 8th district circuit court. Board members were concerned with having consistency for the students and not switching back and forth if the ruling was changed.
At the September 15th meeting the school board discussed a date to revisit this if the courts have not taken any specific action and court proceedings are extended for an unknown period of time. The board agreed to hold a vote prior to the October 6th worksession or if necessary, hold a special meeting if there is a significant increase in COVID cases and/or staff absences warrant such a meeting.
The Clear Creek Amana Community School District strongly recommends masks and will continue to evaluate new information as we progress.
