A running list of school districts keeping or dropping their mask mandates

Since Governor Charlie Baker announced last week that Massachusetts would end its statewide school mandate Feb. 28, individual school districts have been weighing whether to discard masking policies in their classrooms.

Regardless of a district’s choice to make masks optional within school buildings, masks still will have to be worn in all school health facilities such as nurses’ offices..

Dozens of school committees across the state already have voted to remove their own local mandates, but others have yet to decide.

Here’s a look at some of the schools that have announced they will drop or keep mask mandates.
