CHANGES IN MASK REQUIREMENTS AT MENOMONEE FALLS SCHOOLS, SORT OF

Menomonee Falls School Board voted to change its masking policy during its Monday, 9/27 meeting. However, the changes alter nothing now, and the thresholds are unlikely to be met because of other existing policies.

Schools in Menomonee Falls currently have 23 active COVID-19 cases and 161 quarantines. You can see the latest numbers in the district’s COVID-19 dashboard.

The board voted to give Superintendent Corey Golla:

  • authorization to require 10-day masking in classrooms when 10% of students in that classroom test positive for COVID-19
    • Adults in those classrooms would also be required to mask for a period of 10 days.
  • authority to require 10-day masking when 10% of buildings that have middle and high schools in them have positive COVID-19 cases
    • Adults in other classrooms would not be required to wear masks.

The School District of Menomonee Falls started the school year with masks recommended but not required.

Prior to the board meeting, a policy committee made up of board members concluded that the superintendent required board approval for any changes to COVID-19 mitigation.
