JOPLIN, Mo. — One of the items Joplin school children will be required to have this school year is a mask.
But whether they’ll be required to wear them is the question.
Each year the district posts a school supply list that kids must bring with them to school.
At the bottom of that list for students K through 5 is a mask.
Middle and high school students are asked to purchase one as well.
School administration will discuss a mask requirement at a board meeting in the near future.
