Transition to CHoice in Mask Wearing Has Proven Positive So Far
When I walked into school on last Monday, I immediately thought to myself, “I need to put my mask on."
That thought had become such a habit: putting my mask on before walking into school. At first it was unusual to say the least when seeing most students' faces. But it has proven easy to get used to, and even though it was characterized as a big change in the school systems, it seemed less of a change than I thought.
The mask mandate was lifted last week in many schools, including Mashpee Middle High School, which is something many of us thought we wouldn’t see for a while. Other than not wearing masks, there have been other changes with it, including going back to lunch tables and being able to sit right next to each other. While this is a very exciting thing for many, others may not be as excited, including individuals who are very worried about the pandemic and younger students who have only been at the school with masks on and that is all they know at MMHS.
There is still the option for students to keep a mask on if they are uncomfortable, or even for other personal reasons.
