Around two dozen students entered Manchester High School without masks on Tuesday in protest of a mask mandate issued by the Washtenaw County Health Department.
The students entered the building on Sept. 7, which was the day the health department’s mask mandate for all schools in the county went into effect.
A police officer was called out to the school by the administration but refused to take action against the students.
Located in the southwestern corner of Washtenaw County with an enrollment of about 800 students, Manchester Community Schools had been the only district in the county that made wearing masks optional prior to the health department’s mandate.
