Face mask generic

OLATHE, KS (KCTV) --- The Olathe School District's Board of Education voted on Thursday night to make masks optional for students in grades 9-12.

The new policy will take effect in the district's high schools beginning on Nov. 29.

Until then, universal masking is required for students K-12.

The vote was unanimous.

The move comes two weeks after the De Soto School District's Board of Education voted to make masks optional for high school students.
