Smith-Green students return to class; Board to consider mask policy update on Thursday

CHURUBUSCO, Ind. (WPTA21) - After two weeks of remote learning, students and faculty at Smith-Green Community Schools returned to campus on Tuesday, and the Board announced a special meeting to discuss mask policies set for this Thursday.

Superintendent Daniel Hile, in a YouTube video, said officials will consider a recent Executive Order from Gov. Eric Holcomb that is expected to drastically reduce the need for quarantines at schools that implement universal mask policies.

Hile had previously cited a spike of COVID-19 cases and contact concerns for students and staff as the reason for the move to remote learning.

On Tuesday, he said families have been sent a survey to gather their input in advance of Thursday's Board meeting.

The district operates a junior/senior high school and one elementary school.
