Northwest Allen County Schools

The Northeast Allen County Board passed a resolution to continue with its original reopening plan from July Monday amid continued tensions over masks.

The board heard nearly three hours of public comments from parents, students and residents during the meeting. The resolution, however, was approved before those comments began.

Debates over the continuation of a mask mandate at Northwest Allen County Schools have continued over the past few weeks, leading to a divide within the school board.

 

On Wednesday, the board brought in five health professionals to discuss the reasons why students should continue wearing masks through the last few weeks of school, according to WANE-15.

 

Board President Kent Somers said he was not “in full agreement” with the statements from health professionals.

The Northwest Allen County School Board held a public work session during its meeting Monday to address parent concerns over the continued mask mandate in schools.

The session came after a heated discussion at the last school board meeting, in which some parents argued against the district continuing to require masks in schools.

On Wednesday, Northwest Allen County Schools began meal services for students who rely on school meals during closures due to coronavirus.

 

The district is offering both breakfast and lunch to students who might otherwise not get these meals during the day when school is closed.

 

The meals can be picked up at one of the two pick-up locations, Huntertown Elementary and Carroll High School, or can be delivered if transportation isn’t available.
