Mandatory Mask Mandate Petition (For Parents of ICS Students Only)
We, the undersigned parents of the students at Immaculate Conception School, petition the Diocese of Allentown to rescind the mandate send out on August 23rd 2021 reversing the optional masking policy at our aforementioned school.
We propose a protocol that will allow our parents and school's administration to work hand in hand in dealing with rising and falling cases in our immediate community.
If there comes a time that we determine masking is necessary, the parents and administration will be open to and take the necessary steps to protect our children and minimize the spread of Covid-19 most effectively.
In following the teachings and traditions of the Catholic faith, we believe that the parents are the primary educator and the ultimate authority over the health, safety, and development of our own children. We reserve the right to determine the protocols that will be taken to protect them while still maintaining a normal healthy healthy learning enviroment throughtout this pandemic.
