Students who are in school must wear their masks, unless they’re playing outside.

We spoke to one mother who says her 6-year-old son said he rather wear a mask and go back to school than stay at home.

The Plain Local Schools superintendent says he’s also excited to have students back in school.

He is asking parents to be patient as there may be some bumps in the road as the district navigates these uncertain times.
