Grab a snack and get comfortable, this will be long. THIS is the state of affairs in our schools right now and what they are doing to the next
Let me preface this by saying, Im a pretty tough chick. It takes a lot to break me. I can go up against the toughest in person and online.
Im a die-hard Constitutionalist and can take on the most rabid progressive/commie/leftist person who wants to take the rights of others. I don't get
offended easily and if you can present something that is of opposite opinion of mine rationally, logically and with evidence, I will always consider
it. I can come off as cold and harsh......but I am actually a nice person and have a great sense of humor. My entire life, people tell me that I am so
strong and can overcome anything (and I have been thru a lot). I had to say all of that to confess............I found my breaking point that made me
question all of this.
[indent]Someone messing with my kid and my kid greatly suffering from it.
Last night, I was pretty much brought to my knees and felt 'they' broke me. I have not slept since Sunday night.[/indent]
I live in a conservative county run by conservative commissioners. We have been part of a health department that overseas 3 counties. The other two
counties are far left leaning. When this scamdemic hit, our commie Gov Polis (CO) relinquished a lot of covid authority to our health department %
they decided they would never ever EVER relinquish the power they were given. Colorado is NOT under any mask mandate and has not been since April.
Schools started early August and kids went back to school with no masks.
Out of nowhere, with zero science and local data to back it up, the
health dept decided to mandate kids 11 and under wear a mask. Parents went nuts and protested big time at the health department and spent hours
speaking up at their public meeting. Next thing you know, in what seems like an act of punishment, the health department, with NO data to back it up,
said ALL STUDENTS must mask up in all school buildings and at all school events. This was about 3 weeks AFTER school started. Once again, parents
flipped the # out.
Our school board is a bunch of commies too. There is an election next month and hopefully many will be replaced. Our school board agreed with the
health department and said MASK UP, EVERYONE. Ever since, parents have been not only protesting, but sending letters and showing up at school board
meetings and speaking out against the muzzling ---- and the school board pretty much tells us all to "F off we dont care what you say."
So our conservative commissioners decided to 'divorce' ourselves from the health department and start a new one just for our county. Starting Oct
1st, our county was NO LONGER under any orders or connected to this health department. GREAT!!!!!!!
Not so much.
The commie school board decided to keep the mask mandate. They did not care that there is no state, county or [new] health
department mandate. They just decided "MEH, WHO GIVES A CRAP, WE ARE GOING TO KEEP MUZZLING YOUR KIDS.....WITH ZERO DATA TO SUPPORT IT AND ZERO
MANDATES FROM ANYONE".
So NOBODY IN THIS STATE has to wear a mask anywhere, unless you walk into a school where kids are the least effected by
this version of the flu. Obviously, the school board did this because a majority of the parents (conservative) have been fighting them for over a
year - and we found people to replace them in the election next month. IT IS ALL POLITICAL and our kids are VICTIMS.
Well, being the person I am, I sent an email to my teen's principal. She is a Senior and is graduating early (in Dec). This is what I sent him
His response was generic, blah blah blah the school board said masks are mandated and all students must wear masks. The
Yesterday, I get a text from my daughter that while she was at her math teacher's desk, looking with her teacher for an email over something specific
regarding her new term schedule, they both see a 'confidential' email
with the subject of my daughter + masks
from the Vice Principal.
The teacher actually opens the email in front of my daughter!! Quickly, my daughter reads as much as she can before her teacher quickly closes it in
a "OH # I SHOULD NOT HAVE OPENED THAT" moment.
What my daughter was able to read was that all of her teachers were told that if my daughter so much as lets her mask slip below her nose, that she
is to be reported to the Vice Principal and sent to the office.
My daughter is not only a bit shy, but the most well behaved child since birth. Never in trouble at home, school or anywhere else. A good student with
high GPA, awards, loved by teaches, students, great attitude etc..........and is now on a hit list if she does not wear her mask according to their
standards. Mind you, there is no written rule anywhere for students on how to PROPERLY WEAR A MASK nor what kind of mask. Medical professionals are
actually fitted for their masks or they are useless.
My daughter is now anxiety ridden of getting in trouble and she blames me. This has caused a rift between us. Pulling her out is not an option. She
has less 2.5 months to go then she graduates. She is taking science labs (with dissection's and chemistry experiments) and cannot be homeschooled for
that, this last minute. Plus, its her last 2.5 with friends before we move. I have taught her to be a rebel and ungovernable. But now she wont. They
scared her. And she is pissed at me. And this has broken me. What they have done to her has broken me.
They have made the schools here Nazi Germany and are rounding up kids like they are Jews for not wearing masks properly. This is not an exaggeration.
Her math teacher also said that if they do not enforce the mask wearing, they will be fired. Apparently, other kids are BEING PULLED FROM CLASSROOMS
for letting masks slip below their noses or refusing to wear one. If they do this more than 2 times, they are sent home.
I contacted one of the town commissioners I am friends with on FB. I asked him if he could explain how this was legal. His response:
She has spent all but Freshman year under EXTREME conditions because of this scamdemic. Her entire high school experience destroyed. Her mental state,
while I believed was fully in tact, yesterday, showed me........I may be wrong. The tears and anxiety that I had never seen before. What trauma will
all of these kids have for years to come? MUZZLED unable to see peers facial expressions. Unable to even identify each other because their faces are
covered. FEAR, threats and humiliation if their mask is not on properly. She begged me to not contact the principal about this anymore. I have not
done so. But, I sit today, a broken mom.....not even recognizing myself or this country.
I will be filing a CORA request for that email.
It may take time...but when I receive
it, I will update this thread. If you read this far, thank you. I needed to vent and maybe others needed to know what is happening.
