Thank you to the Fort Scott Elks Lodge #579!! The Fort Scott Elks Lodge #579 presented a check for $3,500.00 to Bourbon County Strong for their campaign in raising funds and awareness for face masks for the students and staff in the Fort Scott School District and Uniontown School District. The Elks National Foundation (ENF) invests in communities where Elks live and work. They help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities. We continue to encourage our communities to help minimize exposure of COVID by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and using good hygiene practices such as washing their hands.

Is your child struggling with wearing a mask? Try these 5 tips: Around the Home: >Have a daily “Mask On!” moment. Make a plan to wear masks around the house at certain times of day, like from 10-11 am, or during certain activities, like setting the table for meals. Have your child help you decide when. >Pick an activity with a concrete ending, like building a simple puzzle, and wear masks throughout. >Plan a special event, like a scavenger hunt or playing together with a favorite toy, with one rule: Masks are required. >Wear masks during art and creativity time, like drawing, coloring or building with LEGO bricks. >Play a game with masks on, whether it’s a classic card game or your child’s favorite video game.
The CDC now recommends people over age 2 wear masks when outside their homes. The purpose of people wearing masks in public is to protect the community. As so many people who have COVID-19 don’t have symptoms, wearing a mask can reduce the possibility that someone with no symptoms could transmit the disease to others. #bourboncountystrong #GBR Visit https://www.bourboncountystrong.com/ for more information.
When our students return to school at USD 234 in a week, they will be required to wear masks. Our mask campaign is an effort to educate students and our community about the importance of wearing masks in our schools to protect our staff and students.
