" No to Masks for Children"
As parents, grandparents and people who care about our children and don't agree, based on science, that our children pose any threat to our well being and the spread of the covid-19 virus we ask you to rescind, the state wide mandatory wearing of masks for school children. The welfare of our children should always be handled by their parents working with their local educators. Given that the experts don't agree on the threat of children spreading the virus and the efficacy of their wearing masks, we feel it is wrong to subject very young children to the social, emotional, and physical damage that is proven to be especially harmful to young children. The threat has not be proven and until you can prove that a child is a threat, you have no rights in mandating that a parent treat that child like a threat or that the child be made to feel like a threat. We respectfully ask you to leave the decision making to the parents who can work with their local educators..
