  • Wear a mask, if your school doesn’t mandate it, demand that change from the school board.
  • Ensure your school has adequate hand washing and sanitizing stations
  • Ensure your school has the ability to enact a hybrid program that allows for staggered school attendance that enables proper social distancing
  • If you can, keep your children at home. This enables those children who truly need to attend school to be there as often as possible.
  • Reach out to your leaders and representatives. Ask your reps to support the science — masks can work when used properly!
