Officials with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation discussed the district's mask policy for the upcoming school year on Thursday.

According to EVSC Superintendent Dr. David Smith, students and staff won't be required to wear masks in the classroom during the 2021-2022 school year.

"We're going to follow the recommendation of the CDC as well as the Indiana Department of Health," Supt. Smith said Thursday. "Masks are going to be strongly recommended for those that are not vaccinated. But that is not a requirement, it's a recommendation."

As stated in the EVSC's updated mask guidelines on its website, students and bus drivers will, however, still be required to wear masks while on the school bus as long as the federal transportation mask mandate persists.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
