CHADRON, Neb. -- Chadron Public Schools are approving a COVID-19 plan for their coming school year.
It supports, but doesn't require, wearing masks.
It's keeping mandatory use as an option if a school is hit by a major outbreak.
The approach had solid support, though not enthusiastic, from a full house audience at Monday night's board meeting.
Board member, Boone Huffman, said he was more worried about the reaction of children to masking - including shame and suicidal thoughts - than he was about the district being hit with deaths from COVID.
