Dianna Austad started this petition to Alberta Government and

On August 4, 2020, The Alberta Government announced this morning that non-medical masks will be mandatory for Grade 4-12 students and staff when school returns for in-person instruction on August 31, 2020. Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 12 students will be provided with two reusable non-medical masks. Non-medical masks will be required in all shared and common spaces, such as hallways and on school buses. Masks will remain optional for Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 3 students. For more information on today’s announcement, please visit the ​Alberta Government website​.

This is absolutely ridiculous and not only infringes on our kids rights to choose but starts the process of a dictatorship not a democracy.  

We to want to keep staff and students healthy and safe. So follow the correct steps. Washing hands, proper coughing and sneezing, send home kids with a fever. Masks are not an additional precaution that makes sense in a school environment.

if you choose to wear a mask that is your choice and their wearers will NOT be shunned. This will not lead to heightened social tensions in Alberta schools. 

This petition is a call from parents and kids alike that our rights should not be taken away and that wearing a mask is a choice. Not only will kids be touching their faces more with masks they will not wear them properly and it is going to be a constant fight for teachers. 

Take a stand now!!!
