SM)--District officials said Enid Public Schools students will continue wearing masks through the end of the school year, though masks will be optional at all outdoor events going forward. District spokesperson Jane Johnson told Enid News and Eagle this would take effect immediately unless Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association overrules the decision. “Enid Public Schools feels the safest thing to do at this time is to continue wearing masks at all campuses,” Johnson said. EPS Superintendent Darrell Floyd said he would recommend board members next month make masks optional during summer school.
