We The People of Beechwood Independent Schools come together in singleness of purpose. Allow the signature on this petition to affirm my opposition to the mandatory masking of students at Beechwood Independent Schools during the 2021-2022 school year. We are not opposed to parents or students choosing to wear masks at school. We are opposed to having ANYONE force students to wear masks or face coverings at ANY time during the 2021-2022 school year. We believe the choice to wear a mask at school is between parents and children. Government mandates or school board edicts should have no role in this decision.
