Dubuque Community School Board members will continue to discuss, and possibly decide, whether to require masks in schools at their meeting on Monday, Oct. 11.

The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. at the Forum, 2300 Chaney Road.

School board members previously discussed whether to enact a masking requirement both at a special board meeting in September and at a Facilities/Support Services Committee meeting earlier this month.

A federal judge last month temporarily ordered the state to stop enforcing a law that banned school districts from requiring masks. On Friday, the order was extended until a lawsuit challenging the law can be decided. Gov. Kim Reynolds has appealed the preliminary injunction.

Monday's agenda also includes consideration of a resolution setting a hearing on the proposed issuance of about $16 million in school infrastructure sales, services and use tax revenue refunding bonds.
