Camden County school says Governor's new quarantine rules prompt strict mask mandate

The Camdenton School District issues stricter mask rules for students, teachers, and parents. 

Under the school board’s latest decision, students who refuse to wear a mask may be sent home or face possible out of school suspension. 

Masks are also required for extra-curricular activities for both students and patrons.  If spectators are unable to maintain six feet of social distancing in the stands, they’ll be required to wear a mask.  Those who don’t comply may be asked to leave. 

Superintendent Dr. Tim Hadfield told KRMS, the main reason for this change is the recent quarantine rules set by Governor Mike Parson.  Under those rules, more students who may have been exposed to COVID-19 can remain in class.
