Enterprise City Schools announced on Oct. 8 that the school system would continue its mask policy on campus going into the second nine weeks of the school year.
ECS Superintendent Dr. Zel Thomas previously stated the school system would evaluate the policy – that requires masks be worn indoors on campus – at the end of the nine weeks. Through a news statement, Thomas said that while community transmission rates are trending in the right direction he and the school system has been advised to continue the mask policy.
“Despite our community transmission numbers trending in the right direction we have been advised to continue our mask mandate a bit longer since Coffee County currently identifies as High Risk,” the statement read. “This is an improvement over the Very High Risk designation we held when we began school in August, but not low enough to prudently lift the mask mandate. Hopefully, our community numbers will continue to trend in a favorable direction to ultimately allow us to comfortably lift this mandate sooner rather than later.”
