A scuffle broke out during the Eastern Carver County school board meeting Monday night, prompting district leaders to call for civility and announce an increased police presence at future meetings.

The physical altercation came at the end of a 45-minute public comment period dominated by speakers opposing the district's decision to extend the masking requirement for students because of rising COVID-19 cases.

In a statement posted online Tuesday, school board Chair Jeff Ross and Superintendent Lisa Sayles-Adams said the issue of masking has become a "flash point" in the district, which includes Chaska, Chanhassen, Carver and Victoria.
