    At a Special Called Meeting held on Thursday January 20, 2022, the Gates County Board of Education  voted unanimously to continue with the mandatory mask mandate for all students, teachers and staff due to the current positive cases within the county. The Board of Education will reconsider the mandatory mask mandate at the February 7, 2022 regular session meeting. At this meeting the Board of Education will also determine and outline the metrics and criteria for future decisions regarding masks in schools..





    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesman

    and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement  until his assassination on April 4, 1968. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    was established as a holiday in cities and states throughout the United States beginning in 1971, and became

    a federal holiday when President Ronald Reagan signed legislation in 1986 recognizing the significance

    on a federal level. Dr. King was posthumously awarded the Presidential Metal of Freedom in 1977

    and the Congressional Gold Metal in 2003. In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Gates

    County Schools will be closed to all students and staff on Monday, January 17. 2022.
