Board member is under investigation

A short emergency meeting of the Wrenshall school board Wednesday night resulted in a vote to begin an investigation into the actions of one of its own members. The investigation will focus on the special board meeting held the night before as board members and a public audience discussed Covid-19 protocols before the district opens school for in-person classes next week.

The issue of whether or not to require mask wearing by students and staff dominated the discussion. The board, after two hours, voted unanimously to keep mask wearing as an option and not a requirement.
