First off, we have asked transportation and the school why our children who are under Grade 4 have to wear masks on their bus ride, but not inside the school. No evidence has been given as to why this is necessary, nor why a child will be denied the right to ride the school bus to and from school if they do not. Asking a 4 1/2 year old to wear a mask on the bus and not in school is confusing for us as parents, as well as our children.
My husband and I both were unsure how it would play out for our son and how long he would be on board for wearing one so he could go to school, we’re he does not have to wear one. On October 1st, 2020 I received a call from our school office saying I would need to come pick our son up because he refused to wear a mask so he was not allowed to ride the bus. Upon arriving, I then found out he was unable to find his mask, same with his teacher and the EA in the room, which quickly upset him and messed with his routine. The teacher took him to get a new mask from the principal, but he only wanted his as we had told him not to be wearing other masks as it wasn’t his. While he was not wanting to wear another mask, he watched his bus, along with every other bus, leave the school, which caused another issue of him not knowing what was happening! When I got there, I saw my son in a completely inconsolable state and had never seen him like that before, which is heart breaking and completely unnecessary for a child his age to go through! 
We don’t ever want to see our son or any other child feel this way, and until actual reasoning with facts can be given to us to say why they have to wear a mask on a bus, but not in school, we ask that masks not be mandatory for children under Grade 4 limit that was set in place for all of Manitoba!
