Protect The Children

It has been exciting the past few weeks seeing pictures in The Pilot of new school openings. I can still remember the excitement when I got a modern school, back in third grade. Is it just public schools that need to follow the orders to wear masks?  

In the Jan. 10 edition, Sandhills Classical Christian School is featured with seven pictures. Parents, are you OK that, while a board member gives your children doughnuts, he is not wearing a mask? What about a few steps more where a director is opening the door for your kids, and he isn’t wearing a mask. Are the kids at the lockers all siblings? Several are without masks.

I graduated from a Christian private school and I cannot believe the leadership would put themselves and the students at risk (and the parents or grandparents).  

This is not an option due to your political party, or a protection because you pray at the Christian school. This is a necessity as we hit the highest death rates in the United States of America. This has been a directive for many, many months.

Academic results at most Christian schools is quite good. They have smart teachers. Masks don’t work. Town Hall: “New Study Shows Mask Mandates Had Zero Effect in Florida or Nationwide, But the Lie Continues”

Masks work. Kent is lying as usual.

How did the no masks required work out for the dopes in the White House Kent?
