Hawley School Brings Back Mask Mandate
Hawley, MN — The Hawley School District returned to a mask mandate for the both high school and elementary this Thursday. This is the first time this year that the high school has required masks and second time this year in the Elementary. Hawley Elementary Principal Chris Ellingson says they begin requiring masks whenever there are 5 or more positive cases in each building.
Ellingson notes that as of evidence from the first time around, the mask requirement has proven as an effective method slowing the spread.
According to the Hawley School website, as of Wednesday there was 15 high schoolers and 23 in PreK through 6th grade currently in quarantine.
