CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Administrators at Hebron Christian School require face coverings, but students get breaks from the masks when it's safe to do so.
Headmaster of the school, Bobby Eiland, said students do not have to wear masks during gym class, recess, and while they eat.
Eiland said only 165 students attend the school. Since five to 15 students can be in each class, face coverings aren't required in classrooms either.
Headmaster Eiland said he does require students to wear face coverings on buses and in the hallways when they can't social distance.
"Anytime they are less than six feet apart they wear their masks," he said.
Headmaster Eiland said if a student doesn't have a mask, school staff will give him or her one.
If students who ride the bus don't have face coverings. their bus driver will give them one before they can get on.
Eiland said many parents are donating masks too.
"Parent support has been tremendous during this whole thing," he said.
