Board implements temporary mask requirement

The Bledsoe County Board of Education voted in a special called meeting Monday, August 16, to implement a temporary mask mandate for staff and students for the remainder of the month. However, an announcement by Governor Bill Lee on Monday gives parents the option on whether their child wears a mask or not.

Director of Schools James Ellis said he hopes to have the policy in place by next Monday and his team will work out the details this week.

    I think it should be mandatory they all wear masks to help prevent the spread of this virus.
    Same as last year you have many immune compromised people who don’t need this virus brought home. Wearing masks helped last year; why not do it again and also don’t have 35 students in one class; how can you social distance in this case?
