On July 1st, NCCSC made this statement, "The superintendent of New Castle Community School Corporation, Dr. Matt Shoemaker, released the back to school information for the 2020-2021 school year. Students first day will be on August 5th. Students will attend school all 5 days of the week with normal times. MASKS WILL BE OPTIONAL for all grades." 

This is concerning for several members of our community. In the past 24 hours, people have shared stories of immunocompromised children as well as children who live with immunocompromised family members. Masks are the bare minimum that our schools can do to keep our people safe from the spread of Covid-19. Germs already run rampant in schools; it should be the number one concern of our community to keep it from spreading in the coming months. If the school can keep students from wearing hats, tank tops, and short skirts, surely they can mandate the wearing of masks. Please help us get this rule passed.
