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.
