Mark your calendars. February 24, DNUSD school board will be hearing your words regarding Masks and Vaccines. Superintendent Harris has been quoted stating he has to follow the law regarding masks.

Roseville Joint Union’s District Becker sent a message in a letter to school staff, “the superintendent assured teachers they would not be held accountable or liable for not enforcing the mask mandate.” According to legal advice given to the school district, the California Department of Public Health does not require teachers or school staff to enforce the mandate.
