WDMESC will be requiring the wearing of a mask for all Cooperative employees and professional development attendees effective Monday, August 16, 2021. This decision is based on several reasons, the most important being the safety of our guests and staff members. In addition, over one-half of our member districts have approved a policy that mandates a mask to some degree. I feel that it is important to honor their wishes and assist them in keeping their employees and students safe. Please join me in protecting our work family, home families, and those educators and students we serve.
