Petition for Mask Choice for Lakeview Students
We, the undersigned, call on the Lakeview Board of Education as well as Superintendent Taylor, to reverse the school’s current policy of mandatory student masking. As parents/guardians, it is our right and responsibility to make decisions in regard to the health and safety of our children.
Studies on both sides of this topic are highly debated, and to consider only one factor, oversimplifies a complex, multifaceted issue. Being that each student has unique physical, psychological, and social needs, we believe only a parent or guardian is qualified to make the most beneficial choice for their child.
To this end, we urge you to recognize and respect parental rights, and rescind the decision of masking students so that it remains what you previously referred to as a “family choice.”
My signature is to indicate agreement with the position statement above. In signing, I declare all information is correct.
