WINFIELD, Kan. (KWCH) - Masks will no longer be required in the classroom for Winfield students and staff. The school board voted, 4-2, Tuesday night, with one abstention, to only highly encourage them throughout the school day.

But, masks will be still be required in high-density and high-traffic areas, such as commons areas, large group gatherings, indoor assemblies and concerts, according to Superintendant Dr. Nathan Reed.

Reed said, per federal mandate, masks will also remain a requirement for those who ride or drive school buses or other public transportation provided by the district.
