Celia Striegel started this petition to New Albany Floyd County School District

As tax payers in New Albany Floyd County, our voices and opinions deserve to be heard. It is our right as parents to decide what is best for our children. We should not have to choose between sending our children to school, or forcing them to wear a mask. I believe that every parent or household should have the right to decide what is best for their individual child. 

As a mother to two school aged children, this topic is extremely important to me. Both of my children have been negatively affected by the mask mandate in more ways than one. My son not only has asthma and has his breathing severely affected, but also has a unilateral hearing loss. It is imperative that those in the hearing loss community see our mouths when we are speaking. It is also important that the sound not be affected in any way, by a mask or shield. This can hinder their ability to understand speech and sound, especially in a group setting such as a classroom. My daughter has also suffered from molluscum on her neck and chin as a direct result of being forced to wear a mask. All of this goes without saying that their mental and emotional well-being has taken a toll from all that they have had to endure over the last year.

Our story is one of many throughout our community and I urge you to speak up for your children. If we do not advocate for them, no one else will. With mask mandates being lifted all over the country, it is well past time they also be lifted within our schools. The choice to wear a mask or not, should be left to the individual, not a government official.
