The following resolution was passed at the special school board meeting Monday 8/24/20:

The Menno School Board of Education strongly encourages anyone who wants to wear a mask, that they wear a mask, but it is the Menno Board policy that it is not mandatory by anyone to wear a mask for students and staff.

Activities for the week:


Menno FFA LDE held virtually

JH GBB and BBB vs. Hanson @ Alexandria (games played in the main street auditorium)

Four games---Girls 4:00/4:45, boys 5:45/6:30

Masks are mandatory in Hanson school facilities and activities hosted by the Hanson School.  Our students have adjusted well in this effort to help mitigate COVID-19 in our facilities and we ask that any spectators please respect their efforts by following the requirement of wearing masks in our facilities as well.  Active participants, officials, and bench personnel are not expected to wear masks during the contest in which they are participating.  We ask that you please pass this information on to your students, teams, and parents ahead of time so they can choose whether to attend or not, and if choosing to attend, they can come prepared to meet the facility guideline as masks will not be provided by the Hanson School at the door.  

Thank you for your help in this matter.
