We, the undersigned, petition the Whitefish Bay (WFB) school board to rescind the June 23, 2021, revision of policy 453 requiring face masks for unvaccinated WFB school students related to the coronavirus. The absolute risk of COVID-19 in Milwaukee County is 0.00004 or 0.004% of the population. Click the link for the most recent Northshore Health Department COVID-19 data.

Students wearing face masks do not reduce the relative coronavirus risk.

There are multiple Northshore schools and school districts that are making masks optional due to a lack of evidence of the effectiveness of masks on children. Some examples of those school districts and schools currently planning masks optional are:



New Berlin




Oak Creek


USM (University School) Summer School

St. Robert’s School

Eastbrook Academy

Further, coronavirus vaccines are not available for children less than 12 years of age. With the advice of our medical consultants, we petition that student face masks be optional for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Please join us in signing this petition.
