If you remember back in August, there was a board meeting held in Kent County in Grand Rapids after a mask mandate was issued for teachers and children preschool through the sixth grade.

Well it seems that many parents, along with school board members and several others are somewhat frustrated with what's going on regarding wearing masks in school.

According to mlive.com:

The Michigan Parent Alliance for Safe Schools hopes to collect thousands of signatures and convince state authorities to do what Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has lately been reluctant to do-supplant local control.

It's very difficult for any person to give their own opinion about this subject matter, because no matter what you say or do, not everyone is going to agree with you.

Mlive.com adds:

The group says it is pushing back against "anti mask mobs" that threaten school boards and local leaders across the state, where the issue has brought about contentious debates on streets and in crowded meeting rooms. The opposition questions the effectiveness of masks, worry they impede learning or cause anxiety and lauds parental control.

We all know that many people are getting vaccinated and wearing masks The bottom line is to keep everyone safe.

It's pretty sad when people have to get in arguments when it comes down to the safety of our children. Sure people have a right to voice their own opinion whether or not to wear a mask, but we've been trying to get through this pandemic for a very long time and we really don't need all this craziness.

Let's just calmly work on a really good plan for everyone involved and stick with it until we all get through this pandemic.
