Commissioner of Education, Richard Cororan, sent a letter on Tuesday to Superintendent Hanna and LCS Chair Joy Bowen related to Hanna’s decision to institute a mask mandate for students in Pre-K–8.
Corcoran refers to the decision as “significant neglect in response to the recently adopted Emergency Rule” which ordered that all schools allow for an opt out for parents who did want their children wearing masks at school.
Cororan notes that he is initiating an investigation into Hanna’s decision and requested a written response from Hanna by Wednesday, August 11th.
Corcoran concludes the letter by stating that if the matter is not addressed maximum penalties will be imposed.
