Young. In an interview after the meet- ing, Glass added, “We need to take the steps necessary to get this virus behind us, which in- cludes the COVID-19 mitigation measures that we have proven effective in Kentucky’s schools. Masking is part of that effort” According to the KBE regu- lation, everyone inside a public school facility must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth while students are pres— ent in the facility. Children under the age of 2, and any person with a disabil- ity or physical or mental impair- ment that prevents them from safely wearing a face covering, are exempt from the regulation. ’Ihere also are some additional groups and circumstances ex- empt from the mask require- ment under the regulation. To support the need for the emergency regulation, Robin Kinney, associate commission- er in KDE’s Office of Finance and Operations, cited evidence showing the alarming rise in COVID—19 diagnoses and hospi- talization among children. On Aug. 9, the Kentucky CO- VID report indicated 269 new cases were reported in a single day for those age 18 and young- Kentucky Board of Education annroves emergency mask regulation [0 mitigate ("NIB-19 snreatl III schools er, representing 20.1% of the to tal new cases on that single day. Similar counts were reported in the days following. Children under 12 are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. . “This is a very busy time as we kick off the new school year in Kentucky,” Kinney said. She noted news reports from states across the country, which were provided to the board, where school started without/universal masking requirements and dis- tricts had to quarantine staff and students. The US. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended all stu- dents and staff wear a mask in schools. Glass had said earlier in the week that KDE’s guid- ance is “based on science and upon recommendations from public health organizations.” Glass also said “there are cer- tainly competing values that we are all weighing in making these decisions. Our values must be around keeping students and communities safe while priori- tizing in—person learning.” The Local Superintendents Advisory Council (LSAC) met prior to the KBE meeting and voted to recommend that the board table the regulation, and encouraged the KDE to work with DPH to develop local met- rics for school districts instead. The board took the LSAC‘s recommendation under ad- visement, however, given the statewide impact of the virus, decided to move forward with ingsville, Ky. 4.0360 367 12 70 . i «.:m.~xv9«%:.z~.<¢.-m WVAW». .. e sheds CHUCK MARSHALL ;'iAUCTlON & REAL ESTATE co., mc.~- .v Jerry Neal Real Estate Agent 606—748-0128 Cell 606-845-5010 www.chuckmarshal|.com 4565 Maysville Road Flemingsburg, 41041 13 5mm worm ..vvuarrm.rv approval of the emergency reg- ulation. “There’s no local anymore,” said KBE member Claire Batt. “We are too interconnected. We travel, we go to the next town and therefore we transmit this virus between our communi- ties.” Several KBE members, in- cluding Young and Batt, said they appreciated the many corn- . munity members who called or wrote emails expressing their opinions on the emergency regulation. “1 wantto thank all the parents who have written and expressed their thoughts,” said Batt. “I re- ally appreciate that you are an advocate for your child, but I do urge you to consider the impor- tance of this act in keeping your child safe.” Glass shared his appreciation for the board’s decision-making amid the many different opin- ions on mask mandates. “I am sensitive to and under- stand that there are many differ— ent perspectives and opinions on the question ,that’s before you,” said Glass. “In our recom- mendation to you, the values that we put forth are based on the health and safety of our students and their educational experience.” Menifee Housing Associates Section 8 Based on 30% of income.
