KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Shawnee Mission Board of Education voted Monday to move a discussion about whether to implement a mask mandate for employees, to another day.

The board was originally supposed to discuss the mandate on Monday night, but decided to move it because not every board member was present in-person.

According to the district's COVID-19 dashboard, there are currently 76 people in quarantine which are mostly students. However, there are nine members of its staff in quarantine.
