The Stokes County Board of Education approved the motion to "Free the Smiles of Stokes County Schools." The motion will start the school year by informing parents about the benefits of vaccination and masking, and the consequences of not being fully vaccinated and not wearing a mask, but leaving the decision up to the individual employees and adults, and the parents or guardians of minor children.
