Districts across the state will make decisions on mask-wearing for students based on sometimes conflicting guidance from public health groups and medical associations.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say masks should be required only for unvaccinated students. The American Academy of Pediatrics says all students should wear face coverings.

It’s now up to Michigan school districts to decide which right. And you can help them.

With the fall semester approaching, Michigan school officials are once again developing COVID safety plans as more contagious variants spread among unvaccinated people across the U.S. Public feedback on these measures should help determine what safety measures students and staff are asked to take this fall.

We’re asking Chalkbeat readers to get the discussion started. What safety measures do you think are essential? Which, if any, aren’t workable?
