BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Pineville Independent Schools will vote Monday on whether or not to keep the school’s mask policies in place, according to Superintendent Russell Thompson.
Though an official vote had not taken place, a post to the school’s Facebook page, which has since been deleted, read that children would be allowed to choose whether to wear a mask.
Board members, parents, and teachers say they were caught off guard by the post.
Supt. Thompson says that due to the political nature of the comments, the post was removed until the board votes on the future of the mask policy.
