ORIGINAL STORY

Camdenton R-III made the decision Tuesday morning at a board member meeting to make face masks mandatory for students and staff "on the move" throughout the school. This means anytime students and staff are moving through hallways or any other time they are not stationary within a classroom.

This decision was made after much discussion on the subject. Some board members felt unsure of the decision, with others going as far as to consider even further protection for teachers such as goggles.

The motion was approved with only one member voting no. 

Students will be provided with masks if they do not bring their own. 

More information on this decision will come as it is provided.
