Erin Atherton started this petition to Parents and

Tell members of the Olathe School Board as well as Superintendent Brent Yeager to listen to the experts, follow the science, and vote to make masks mandatory for all K-6 grade Olathe Public School students at the next school board meeting August 5. Local and national groups of pediatricians, nurses, and the CDC have made clear the need for masks to keep students safe for in-person learning. Without the option to be vaccinated, masks are the next strongest line of defense for our K-6 grade students. 

Currently, the board and Superintendent Yeager have no plans to change the current policy of allowing masks to be voluntary for all students while the number of COVID cases has increased sharply since they made this decision on June 3. Please sign this petition to let them know the majority of parents in this district believe in science and listen to medical experts and know that masks keep our students, our schools, and our community safe.

If you are opposed to masks for your child, please sign up for Olathe virtual school and enjoy mask-free learning from your own home. The rest of us will mask up for the safety of our kids and community and enjoy the benefits of our kids learning in-person, at school.
