Masks Optional for District 204
Wearing a mask will be optional this fall for students in Indian Prairie School District 204. That was the main topic of discussion at last night’s board of education meeting where district administration gave an update on their fall plans. Masks will still be required while riding school buses. Though mask wearing in school is currently just a recommendation, if COVID-19 transmission rates increase the district may make it a requirement. District 204 will release more details about its return to school plan at the next board of education meeting in August.
