Parents dont have any expertise or experience in dealing with viruses & should get No say or vote over public health policies. That's what we have actual experts for. We don't call parents when our cars break down. Public Health measures are not any parent's choice" to make. No such "right" exists!

All parents that wish for their children to wear a mask may choose that option. Requiring ALL students to do so is totalitarian and is not your right to enforce. Rights go both ways. Put your child in a hazmat suit if you like, but don't expect others to be required to join your folly.

Yes, it's totalitarian to protect your offspring... Wrong. You sound like Casey Anthony.

Emily, yes. You are correct. You allusion to Casey Anthony has no merit.

The word you both are looking for is utilitarian. The argument is deontological versus the former. Maybe you should both wait to formulate your opinion, until you can have one that’s worth having.

you clearly did not do well in history/civics if you think a single rule about masking during a pandemic is what makes up a totalitarian state.

Another American who has no idea what totalitarian actually entails or means. The state has every right to require masks of every student. That's just good Public Health policy. It's the opposite of totalitarianism. You're being ridiculous and hysterical

The Bette decision here is school choice. Stop taxing us. Let us pay for our own schools.

That’s a fine argument ma’am. If I make that choice, will I be refunded my real estate taxes? Why should I pay for anyone elses child?

If you want to cough up the money for private school, that's your choice. But Public Schools will always be funded my taxes. I don't have kids and I had to pay taxes for schools my entire adult life. I don't whine and cry about it. It's the right thing to do if we want decent schools for our kids.

it's like yo-yo dieting. masks were proved to be effective, but now it's time for the metaphorical triple cheeseburger, fries, and chocolate cake

Well over 5000 children sick with COVID-19 in the state of Missouri. You wanna regulate our uteruses but not wear a piece of cloth to protect others. Disgusting.

Lol Emily, calm down. Trust me, more children are dying from cancer, domestic abuse, abortions, and car accidents. Children have a much better chance with Covid, than they do staying in public schools.

Snow? What snow? There is no snow on the roads. LOL they canceled the weather spotter class because of this? I guess it is difficult to predict the weather in MO. Trick to driving in snow is slow down, anticipate stops and try to avoid bad drivers. Having a full size 4x4 SUV makes it easier.

My Dad wouldn't let me get my license until I mastered snow and ice in Woolworths parking lot on a Sunday, everything was closed.
