Blue Valley to make masks optional for high schoolers starting after Thanksgiving

Blue Valley masks

Blue Valley high schoolers will no longer be mandated to wear a mask to school starting Nov. 29. Masking will be optional for high schools as long as each school's percentage of combined isolations and quarantines remains less than 3% among faculty and students. File image.

Blue Valley has become the latest public school district in Johnson County to opt to roll back mask requirements for some students.

The Blue Valley school board voted Monday to make masks optional for high school students and students in the district’s CAPS programs starting Monday, Nov. 29, the day students return from Thanksgiving break.
