This was the time for public commentary and citizens of Mitchell spoke on the concerns of the mask mandate in the school system. Issues that were heard were health issues wearing the mask all day in school, school board has too much control, teachers are harassing students on how to wear the masks, the medical profession is being incentivized in doing more testing and concerns about Fast testing students in the schools.
After about 70 minutes of public commentary, the meeting continued with the agenda item of considering on whether or not the board should survey parents on their view of the current mask mandate.
Motion #3351468
Motion by Musick, seconded by Kenkel to not conduct a parent survey of parents on their view of the mask mandate. Musick indicated that public health should not be based on a popular vote. That we should listen to our public leaders and the medical community and they are all saying to mask up. President Olson said it is the goal to keep students in school, it is a safe place for students and their only meals of the day and E-Learning is the last resort.
