Parents respond to continuing mask requirement in Billings Public Schools

Billings students will have to wear masks for the foreseeable future after Superintendent Greg Upham extended the mask mandate on Thursday.

Parents responded to the news Friday while waiting to pick up kids after school.

“You know, I would love to see them go away but it’s not that big a deal,” said Kara Eaton, parent of a student at McKinley Elementary School. “If it’s gonna help the kids I’d rather they just keep them on.”
