(DEVELOPING STORY) – At tonight’s Roane County School Board meeting, a motion was made to make face coverings for students mandatory during the COVID-19 pandemic. That motion failed by a 5-4 vote, thus keeping the original wording that masks are recommended, but not required.

Here is the original policy that will be in place:

Face Masks/Coverings

All students utilizing Roane County Schools transportation are asked to wear masks while riding on the bus.

Students will not be required but are ENCOURAGED to wear masks in common areas in the school building (hallways, restrooms, etc.) and when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Middle and high school students will be asked to wear masks in common areas in the school building (hallways, restrooms, etc.) and when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Students and employees are encouraged to bring their own masks, but the district will have masks available for students and staff who need them.

Employees will be asked to wear masks in common areas.
