After first day back, Billings school superintendent stands by mask requirement

BILLINGS — After the first day back at school on Monday with masks required for staff and students, Billings School District 2 Superintendent Greg Upham asked for understanding in the community as parents and teachers work through the COVID-19 pandemic together.

“I can surely understand the frustrations that everyone has with this, but the best thing to do is just continue to communicate. I mean, those are real feelings on both sides and we made the decision based on student health and we’ll continue to move forward,” Upham said.
