Our children need to have the option to wear a mask or not wear a mask during the 2021/2022 school year.

It is imperative that students have the ability to see their peers facial expressions especially in the younger age children. They grow and learn to read cues from their peers through facial expression. The younger children especially who are just starting to be able to form their relationships are not able to learn this crucial aspect of life. Without it they will forever have a handicap because of it. 

It has also been proven time and time again that children are not spreading COVID, most cases have been isolated incidences brought on because of someone else in their lives and not a direct relation to sitting in class with their friends. These children are outside playing together, playing sports together, closer to each other then they sit in classrooms. 

Our children should have the option to wear a mask if they want?  The surrounding schools that are much larger then our district have been able to offer optional masks in their schools with no outbreaks. We surely can offer the same thing. Please be reminded that we are our children’s voices. Please take a stand for it.
