The St. Joseph school board moved its Monday meeting to John and Dede Howard Auditorium at the high school to accommodate the larger-than-normal crowd.

ST. JOSEPH — The St. Joseph school board voted unanimously Monday to require masks, regardless of vaccination status, as part of the district’s return-to-learn plan.

Superintendent Jenny Fee recommended the universal mask mandate to the board, saying she firmly believed this was the best option for the district.
