KIRKWOOD, Mo. – The Kirkwood school board will meet virtually Monday night to possibly extend the district’s mask mandate.
The meeting was originally going to be in-person, but the Kirkwood School District said it was moved to online due to a “concerning phone call received by the Kirkwood Police Department related to potentially illegal activity.”
The superintendent ordered all students and staff to wear masks when they returned from winter break. That’s a reversal of the school board’s decision on December 13 to “recommend” masks. Officials said COVID-positive case numbers remain at high levels in Kirkwood schools. The school board will be asked to continue the mask mandate.
The Kirkwood district was not among the 14 districts sued by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt last week to overturn their mask mandates.
