Yankton School Board to continue their masking policies

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- A review of new anti-bullying policies by the Yankton School Board turned into a public attack on the districts face mask policy. Several speakers asked the board to drop the policy due to the harm they said it’s doing to students.

School Board President Dr. Jill Sternquist says they review the policy constantly.

Sternquist says she is still seeing increasing cases come through the clinic where she works.

Sternquist says there is some hope the latest Covid-19 surge may peak soon,

Sternquist says they do hear what members of the public are saying during their meetings.
