Grand Island Public Schools removes mask mandate, moves back to full school weeks

Future closures will be decided case-by case using classroom attendance

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KLKN) – Grand Island Public Schools announced they will move back to full school weeks – without a mask mandate.

When omicron cases reached peaks across the state, GIPS temporarily moved to 4-day school weeks for four weeks to help with recovery for students and staff.

Now that cases have decreased, GIPS Superintendent Tawana Grover announced that the schedule would return to normal.  She also said that face masks would only be required on school buses, but they are only recommended on campus.

Moving forward, classrooms will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis if absences increase.
