BOARD MEETINGS AND MASKS: 

If the Board is meeting in-person, here are some proactive measures to ensure the public understands the requirement to wear masks: 

1. Masks are required for all in attendance at the Kalispell Public School Board Meetings. 

2. If circumstances warrant (e.g., where individuals are disturbing the meeting in their failure to wear masks), the Board will recess for a period of time in order to allow the Board to reconvene the meeting in a virtual setting and allow the public to observe and participate in the meeting in a virtual setting. 

3. The district will not have time to individually address requests to attend the meeting but not wear a mask due to a medical condition. There are two options for such cases: a) Wearing a face shield, either hooded or that wraps around the face and under the chin per CDC recommendations; or b) A virtual option for observing and participating in the meeting to anyone interested in attending but who is unwilling or unable to wear a face covering. 

4. Law enforcement will be called in the case of any disturbance of the meeting (which is a misdemeanor offense under 20-1-206, MCA) by anyone attempting to attend the meeting without wearing a mask, and/or anyone who attends but then removes the mask while in attendance.

Respectfully, 

Kalispell Public Schools
