Interim superintendent Steve Martin addressed the school board last night with the districts updated COVID-19 statistics. As of last Friday, Menominee School District is running at 80% of the population. That is, 250 students currently missing school due to being out on quarantine. Martin says, “there are three options that we can go with; universal masking with daily COVID testing if in contact with someone with COVID, no universal masking with COVID testing if in contact, or no universal masking with no testing if in contact.”

Board President Derek Butler says, “this is a fluid plan, we can come in and out of masking as we go along.”

The universal masking will take effect this Thursday, September 30th with COVID-19 testing to tentatively begin on Monday, October 4th.
