Katelyn Perkins started this petition to Clay Community Schools

Clay Community Schools has decided to mandate masks again. We the parents, students, and community are asking for the choice to make decisions for ourselves in regards to masks. A meeting was called upon by Clay Community Schools where almost no notice for parents to make adjustments to get there to sneak in the mandate. At the meeting there wasn't a chance for the public to speak. There was a 4-3 vote narrowly passing the decision.

Covid is here to stay for a long time, and we've conformed to the rules long enough and have gotten nowhere. It's time to let everyone decide for themselves what is best for their families. We're tired of officials after all of these months telling us masks are needed, but yet we are finding ourselves in following the past of last year. 

It's time to let our voices be heard. Our children are not pets they don't need muzzles (aka masks). Wearing masks, and using sanitizers all day long for long periods of time can cause long term side effects for our children. There's not only several physical tolls, but also psychological tolls on their bodies that masks can make. It should be the families call on if it is worth the risk vs reward of having their children wear them 7-8 hours a day.

There should be more than 7 voices to make this decision. We believe the school board made the wrong call on this vote. Now, we are asking for our school board to take a second look, and hear out our community on this issue. We should have a voice for our children, and the way this vote was conducted was sneaky and inappropriate.
