MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — The mask mandate for Murfreesboro City Schools will continue through at least mid-November.
The school board voted Tuesday night to extend the mandate through Nov. 10.
The MCS school board voted tonight to continue masks mandates with a parent opt out option thru November 10. Parents who have previously completed the mask opt out form will not be required to complete the form again.— MCS Communications (@MCScommunicates) September 29, 2021
Parents do have the choice to opt out of the mandate due to Gov. Bill Lee’s executive order. The district said parents who previously completed the opt-out form, do not need to do it again.
Murfreesboro City Schools began requiring masks back in August due to the rising cases of COVID-19.
