Face masks are no longer required inside Jackson Public Schools
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Face masks are no longer required inside Jackson Public Schools.
Although this is optional, the district says masks are still encouraged.
JPS said the new mandate could change based on the number of COVID-19 cases when school begins on August 8.
As more than 20,000 students prepare to return to school, the district is encouraging everyone to do their part to reduce the spread of the virus, such as getting a vaccine, booster, and social distancing.
There are 7 high schools, 10 middle schools, 31 elementary schools, and 4 special program schools comprising the district’s 52 school sites.
