South Country School District Parents Choice For Masks
We the Parents of South Country School District are demanding parent choice when it comes to mask-wearing during the 2021-22 school year.
This petition is in favor of mask choice for school-aged children grades K-12 in South Country Central School District. We are calling on our school board and district administrators not to mandate masks for the 2021-22 school year. Parents should have the choice of having their child wear a mask in school.
There is no public health justification for forcing children to wear masks in school. When balanced against the physical, mental and emotional harm that is now becoming evident, it is clear that masks do more harm than good including anxiety and depressive feelings. Further, it has been proven time and time again that masks cannot not stop the spread of a virus due to the size of a virus. A virus is so small that it can still pass through microscopic holes in a mask.
Enough is enough and the only answer to mask wearing during the 2021-22 school is
IT'S UP TO THE PARENTS!
