School District of Tomahawk to continue face mask requirement on school property
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The School District of Tomahawk will continue to require all students, staff and visitors to wear masks on school property despite the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s Wednesday, March 31 ruling that struck down Governor Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate.
In an update from Thursday, April 1, District Administrator Terry Reynolds said that all in attendance at activities and events on campus must wear facial coverings through the end of the school year and “until public health officials determine the practice can be lifted.”
“Research has indicated that masks are one of the key factors in schools to slow the spread of COVID-19 and a school’s ability to remain open,” Reynolds stated. “Thank you to everyone for their cooperation and support in keeping all students, staff, and visitors safe in our schools and school property.”
