HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - All students and staff at Alcott Elementary will be required to wear masks starting Friday, January 21. Superintendent Jeff Schneider said the absentee rate at the school surpassed the 12% threshold put in place back in October.

The school currently has more than 12% absent due to illness over the last three days and several other buildings are nearing that number according to Schneider.

The masking requirement will be in place for two weeks, and if the rate drops below 12%, masks will no longer be required.
