Two weeks to flatten the curve, don’t wear a mask, wear a mask, just a few more weeks, we can’t get back to normal until we have a vaccine….Since March of 2020 there has been a non-stop moving of the goal posts as the target of getting back to “normal” never ceases to stand still. We have jumped through all the hoops, stayed home to protect our vulnerable friends and loved ones and made the sacrifices that were asked of us. Arguable, our children have made the biggest sacrifices, having not only their activities, but their everyday schooling taken away from them. They have been asked to stay away from their friends and wear masks that prohibit their breathing, when their age demographic was at the lowest risk of all.

Since the pandemic was declared, the mental health of kids all over the world has declined greatly. Pediatricians are seeing major upticks in depression, anxiety and suidice in their practices, with children as young as 7 and 8 years old. Parents are noticing that their kids are really struggling, enough is enough! After more than 15 months we now have plenty of data and evidence that shows children are not at risk, schools are not “super spreaders”, there ARE treatments for those who get sick and there is a vaccine available to those who want it. Constant testing, contact tracing and the quarantining of healthy people is an unprecedented and unverified way of dealing with an illness and has never before in the history of pandemics been used to deal with stopping or slowing disease transmission.

It is time for schools to get back to normal, REAL normal! A return to school with some kids masked and others not is not only a breach of medical privacy but it will most likely lead to discrimination and bullying. Other states all over the country have returned to normal, with no major issues. If celebrities can have award shows and we can host major league sporting events, with thousands of unmasked people gathering, we can send our kids back to school WITHOUT masks or social distancing and keep it that way all year long!

We the parents and taxpayers of Western Community School District #12 are asking the Superintendent & Board of Education to allow families to make choices that are best for their families and support the bodily autonomy of each individual student.
