A Redmond elementary school teacher is keeping her job despite her refusal to wear a mask. Last night, Superintendent Charan Cline led a termination hearing for fourth grade Terrebonne Community School teacher Tori Caudell who refuses to wear a mask. The rule adopted by the Oregon Health Authority at the direction of the Governor is that all staff and students wear face masks at school. Cline stated the school district has 184 students currently in quarantine. Caudell argued that mandating masks infringes on her safety and her liberty. After statements, the board voted 3-to-2 to not approve the termination. Caudell is still not allowed in a school building without wearing a mask and the issue will now go back to the district as a matter of operations and not personnel.
