FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Springdale Superintendent Dr. Jared Cleveland discusses the mask mandate placed on the city’s schools during the Back to Class special.

Springdale students in kindergarten through 7th grade will be required to wear masks indoors until September 14. Masks will be optional for students in 8th through 12th grades and for all staff, regardless of vaccination status.

Some parents had questions and concerns about the new policy, and we took those questions directly to Dr. Cleveland in our live interview Thursday night.
