My generation survived mumps, chicken pox, measles, scarlet fever, polio, small pox and other diseases. Some killed or maimed for life. Life has always been full of dangers and we are stronger for it. Don't suffocate our young let them be free.

Hey, some kids always drown every year anyway, so why should we bother with arm floats?

It's all about control at this point. Remember the Democrat memo "Never let a good crisis go to waste". Home school and protect your kids from the brain washing in public school.

My childrens health and wellness should be based on my decisions not the governments. I'm not sending her to school if they want to mask them up. Our governor has overstepped her authority in our lives again and again.

Actually, my kids are already homeschooled. Public schools have failed on many levels.

It's child abuse to make kids wear masks. They are the LEAST susceptible.

I'm homeschooling. My daughter has asthma and they made her wear a mask while outside running around. She had more asthma attacks last year than any other year. Masks and vaccines should be a personal choice. Not a mandate.

This is a rapidly mutating virus. Why give it a chance to continue to spread and transform into even more transmissible and deadly variants. We need to stop taking half measures on an inconsistent basis and act to once and for all vanquish this pandemic.

Why? Because 1) the virus is not significantly dangerous to kids at all. 2) there is no scientific study or statistics that show unmasked kids in schools lead to higher community infection rates. 3) masks, for many, trigger migraines, staph infections, acne, etc. 4) masks obliterate socializing

It is a cheaper co-pay to go to certain Urgent Care Centers and is worth the gas money spent to save more.
