Dear Governor Gianforte and School Districts of Montana,

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down. We appreciate the work you have put in to ensure our children have safe access to their education. We understand that this pandemic and our response as humans are fluid, requiring nimbleness in reaction. We also appreciate Superintendant Upham's reversal of an optional masking policy to a mandate is a product of the ever-changing landscape that COVID-19 is creating for us.  

We sign this petition to signify our support of Superintendant Upham. We believe the data, science and experts all indicating that masking in enclosed areas where large groups are present is crucial to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

We understand that a vocal group believes their rights are being violated by asking students to wear masks. We, however, feel that the mask mandate provides a safe and healthy environment for our students to flourish. 

We ask that you continue to consider the unbiased science that shows wearing masks is an effective tool to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for considering science,

Concerned Billings Residents and Other Concerned Parties
