Ashley Brogdon started this petition to Highland Public School Board

This petition is to Highland Public School Board:
WE, THE PARENTS, students, and public of Highland School District petition the Administration and School Board to promptly vote OPTIONAL for mandatory mask wearing for children, visitors, as well as all the staff of our schools.
The Statewide mask mandate was overturned on Wednesday, March 30th, 2021 by our Governor Asa Hutchinson. It is unlawful and unhealthy to continue to compel our children and school staff to wear masks at school. They should be allowed to breathe fresh air, and PARENTS should be allowed to decide on the safety and well-being of their own children. For the mental health, emotional, social development and safety of our children, it’s time for our voices and concerns to be heard.
We, the undersigned, believe the medical decisions made for our children should be done by parents/families of the students, and not forced upon the students by any entity outside of their guardians/caretakers. Parents/families should be able to utilize their own risk assessment, considering all physical, mental, emotional and psychological risks and benefits when it comes to medical decisions, including masking.
By signing this petition, we officially and respectfully request you vote to make masks OPTIONAL for the 2021-2022 school year.
