Masks Required In Michigan City Schools

(Michigan City, IN) - Masks will be required when school begins in Michigan City next month. The school board decided to follow new CDC guidelines in response to rising case numbers nationwide.


Masks will have to be worn inside school buildings by everyone, even for those who are vaccinated. However, masks can be taken off during recess and other outdoor activities. Social distancing guidelines will also be in effect.


Michigan City Area Schools Superintendent Dr. Barbara Eason Watkins said students should have a clean cloth mask each day. In addition, Watson said, “Masks will be required at school and on school buses." 


Eason Watkins said young children should practice using masks now, so students are comfortable wearing masks when they return to school. The start of school in Michigan City is scheduled to begin on August 18.


New Prairie Community School Corporation and South Central Community School Corporation recently announced they would not require students and staff to wear masks this Fall.
