In an email to district parents, Grain Valley Schools announced they have discontinued the mask mandate effective immediately.
From the email:
"We have decided to discontinue our mask mandate, effective immediately. Mask use is now optional for children and adults who wish to wear one in our schools, on our buses, or in other district facilities. This decision follows Friday’s announcement by Jackson County officials that the county public health order was ended."
The district stated it would "strongly recommend face coverings for individuals who are not fully vaccinated, consistent with Jackson County officials and CDC guidelines."
Additionally, the district reaffirmed persons not fully vaccinated who are exposed to someone with COVID-19 will still need to be isolated for 14 days.
