(Adrian, OR)  --  The Adrian School District board in Malheur County are letting their superintendent go, just one week after students returned to classes.  Board members voted four-to-one to terminate Kevin Purnell after disagreements with the state's mask mandate for all public schools.  Purnell said he disagreed with the order from Governor Kate Brown, but would continue to enforce it.  Board members said they decided to remove Purnell over failure to follow directives they issued, but wouldn't cite examples.
