Ms. Campbell stated that she was not in favor of  changing mask mandates before the end of the school year. Mr. Susin explained they needed to reconvene to discuss and wanted health officials to be present for the conversation.  Dr. Mullins let the Board know that he had a conference call with the Florida Department of Health regarding mitigation strategies and they said they would not recommend rescinding at this time; it is too early to make a decision.

It was determined to convene a meeting with health officials. Board members are to compile five questions each for the attending health officials prior to the meeting and should send to Ms. Escobar for compilation.
