By: KDKA-TV News Staff

WASHINGTON, Pa. (KDKA) - The Washington School District is mandating masks for the first few weeks of school.

The school board voted 7-2 to require masks for all K-12 classrooms and indoor school activities until they can re-examine the issue and vote again at the next voting board meeting on Sept. 20.

The district says several teachers and board members on Monday's Zoom call expressed concern about safety while a couple said mask-wearing should be the parent's choice.

Classes for the Washington School District start on Aug. 30.
