Unmask the kids
Unmask the kids
We the parents, residents and taxpayers of the Amery School District are requesting you immediately remove the requirement for face-coverings in our School District. We believe that parents should be the ones making the decisions regarding the individual health and safety of our children not the school.
It is unlawful and unhealthy to continue to require our children to wear face-coverings.
Face-coverings were emergency authorized products for medical use in a declared state of emergency, they are not FDA approved and Federal law title 12 U.S.C 360bbb-3 reads the emergency use authorization states all unapproved products are optional.
By law you must allow students, staff, parents, and visitors while on public tax-paid school property the option to wear or not wear a mask. We are asking that Dr. Shawn Doerfler and the Amery School Board immediately start upholding the oath you took and start following the law.
We also request that you immediately revise the policy for close contact and put an end to quarantining healthy students who show no symptoms at the time of contact. Roughly 50% of Amery 6th graders, who are healthy, are currently home in quarantine.
Unnecessary quarantining of large numbers of students has had negative impacts to student and family life in areas of social, emotional, mental, physical, and financial health.
We the undersigned, believe that parents should solely be making the medical decisions for our children. No medical device or intervention should be forced upon students by entities outside of their guardians.
By signing this petition, we officially and respectfully ask you to IMMEDIATELY end the requirement of masks and to revise an overreaching quarantine procedure in Amery Schools. We remind you to uphold the oath you took and follow the law as it is written.
