Franklin Special School District

FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) - There's no longer a mask one in the Franklin Special School District.

On Monday evening, the school board members unanimously voted to get rid of it and the new requirement is effective immediately.

The board members said a low number of positive cases and vaccine availability made this possible.

Anyone who wants to still wear a mask, can inside their school buildings.

A federal judge previously issued an injunction to halt the state to restrict mask mandates in schools. At that time, Franklin Special School District continued to require masks inside its schools. is now with you on the go!
