WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — School leaders in Palm Beach County announced Wednesday their plan to reopen playgrounds and allow for optional mask use while outdoors.
The school board discussed a policy change that would no longer require mask use during outdoor activities.
Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy said he would like to get a communication sent out to families in the coming days.
"We have to give ourselves a little PR, too," school board member Karen Brill said. "And by putting that out in a communication, that is a positive communication that we are listening, and I think it is the first step."
The school board did not give a date for when the playgrounds will open.
