Let the children see each other Smiles again during School.

Governor Phil Murphy announced that all students, educators, staff, and visitors would be required to wear face masks indoors for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. The Governor signed Executive Order (EO) 251, which will mandate masking in the indoor premises of all public, private, and parochial preschool, elementary, and secondary school buildings, with limited exceptions. The EO is effective on Monday, August 9, 2021. 

We need to end mask mandates in all K-12 schools across NJ immediately! After one full year of this pandemic, we have learned that children are NOT the main spreaders of COVID. They do not transmit it, and they do not get sick from it. Schools in other states have dropped mask mandates without any issues. Schools in other countries NEVER had mask mandates, and there was no significant rise in cases among children or staff. 

Children are being physically and emotionally harmed due to these mask mandates. Physically, masks are extremely unhygienic. Kids are constantly touching their faces to adjust their masks, which is actually causing MORE germs to be spread! In addition, kids are developing headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, etc., due to the restricted oxygen flow while wearing masks all day. It is challenging for most adults to wear them for just a few minutes to go into a store, yet we expect our kids to wear them for 7+ hours per day. This is unconscionable! 

Furthermore, emotionally, it is causing significant trauma. Childhood is a crucial time to develop friendships by socializing and interacting with their peers. When wearing a mask, they lose the ability to see facial expressions, which plays a critical role in socialization.  Kids need to see smiles again.

By mandating masks, we are also teaching children to be fearful of each other. This will undoubtedly cause long-term negative psychological impacts. Research shows childhood depression and suicide have risen dramatically this past year due to lack of socialization. Masks are causing much more harm to our kids than benefits! 

Forcing children to wear masks is nothing short of physical and emotional CHILD ABUSE! Parents should be the only ones to decide what is best for their kids, not the government or school officials!

Now is the time to take a stand for our children and put a stop to the political agenda. With the elections coming up on November 2nd, 2021, you have an opportunity to elect conservative Board of Education members who will fight for your children. Now is the time for you to do your research on who will protect your children.

It’s time for our kids to be kids again. END MASK MANDATES IN OUR SCHOOLS IMMEDIATELY! 

Should the Board of Educations around the state sue Gov. Murphy over his Executive Order (EO) 251.
