A Lake area school is heading back to class with Masks.
Officials in the Richland School High School are putting the requirements back in place, after more than 20% of students and staff were required to quarantine after coming in contact with an infected individual.
Officials at Lebanon R-3 recently agreed to allow masks in school, but they remain optional for staff and students.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has vowed to sue any school district that institutes a mask mandate, even if cases are spreading at high rate.
