Please remove mask requirements and make optional everywhere including teachers / staff at schools. Anyone can now get vaccinated and can wear masks if they choose. It is time to allow everyone including teachers and staff to have the choice to wear a mask or not. Masks did not prevent my kids from getting covid at school and spreading it to me. Schools should never close again due to covid. There were so many negative ramifications as a result. Personally we are dealing with mental health issues with one of our children now including thoughts of taking her own life. It is time to end this madness, free our kids, and allow them to learn in a mask free (optional) environment. The covid school shut down is the worst thing that happened for our family. We witnessed directly how far behind our kids have fallen as well ast the mental health problems as a result. PLEASE make masks optional and never shut down a school completely again.
