NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | NOVEMBER 18-24, 2020 NORTH PROVIDENCE 3 NORTH PROVIDENCE – The School Committee is set to take a vote on whether to amend its policy to reflect state guidance allowing some people to potentially not wear masks if they meet certain standards related to their health. The school board passed a mask policy at its October meeting, but after doing so, the Rhode Island Department of Education issued clarifications on mask-wearing through a challenge in another dis- trict, said Supt. Joseph Goho. In response, he said, the North Providence policy has been revised to reflect those changes and will be voted on at the School Committee's meeting tonight, Nov. 18. The clarification to be added is that applicable aspects of Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act must still be consid- ered when implementing the mask policy, said Goho, essentially mean- ing that a person with an appropri- ate medical condition may poten- tially qualify for an exemption to the mandate. The School Committee is able to vote on a policy and create it imme- diately as long as it's advertised and voted on as an agenda item at a public meeting, which is what was done last month, said Goho.
