This paragraph is incorrect:
"While schools had previously created rigid student cohorts so children did not need to wear masks indoors, the district is now mandating masks at all times and allowing students from different classrooms to commingle."

Children wore masks indoors and outdoors at MVWSD last year unless there was a medical reason, which was incredibly rare. There were rigid cohorts AND strict mask wearing, etc. last year.
