Davenport, IA – According to the statement, the local superintendents say they will continue to keep students safe with other safety protocols.
For parents, masks now come down to choice after requirements in place for almost a year.
While some parents are concerned about the state’s decision, others are praising it.
School officials say they will still social distance, sanitize, and encourage safety with or without a mask as much as possible.
Virtual learning will still be an option for Bettendorf and PV parents who are not comfortable sending their kids back to school without the mask requirement. The state of Illinois still requires masks in schools.
