Parents are Done with CDA School District
A lot has been happening this week but I’m going to focus on the CDA school district for this moment because of all the drama happening today.
As a reminder, the CDA school board met on Monday for their regularly scheduled monthly meeting. A lot of the time spent at that meeting was discussing CARES funding (they’re about to get a THIRD round of C0vid funding) and their mask mandate policy. They decided, after going back and forth about what government entity they were going to listen to this month, that they will keep the mask mandate in place for the next 2 weeks as they wait and see if anyone spreads C0vid from Spring Break. This, mind you, is after the head nurse informing them that there are only 5 cases of positivity within the 11,500 students/faculty/administrators within the school district, but “the day over day positivity rate is stagnant and not below 1.” That’s below ONE person who has this cold virus. You can’t even find less than one of those 11,500 people that doesn’t have the flu this time of year! Oh wait, the flu’s been eradicated by C0vid so I guess this is the only year you would ever find someone who doesn’t have flu. **insert sarcastic eyeroll here**.
Parents who watched the board meeting on Monday were absolutely flabbergasted that Lisa May threw a hissy fit about the idea of not having forced masks on everyone who stepped foot on the school’s hallowed ground. There was discussion back and forth, with Casey Morrisroe and Jennifer Brumley both asking where the bar was being set because it seems, and parents are going to ask, about the rules changing every time the board meets. In the end they decided to compromise and come back together for a special meeting on April 19th to see if there was a spike in cases “due to Spring Break.” (We won’t talk about all the spring sports happening with NO ONE wearing masks, on school property, off school property, in groups. at meets, etc.)
After the school board meeting, a few parents were throwing around a few ideas about how to get the school board’s attention because obviously emails and phone calls weren’t working, and comments are turned off of every board meeting livestream so no one can comment while the meeting is going on. That parent discussion turned into the idea of allowing their children to go to school maskless on Friday. The kids were all for not having to have difficulties breathing, and parents were all for it because it meant they wouldn’t have to worry about their kids not being able to breathe, while drawing attention to the fact that this mandatory mask policy is pointless. Word spread through parent groups on social media quicker than Fauci changing his mind about C0vid precautions.
Word got back to the school administrators that people were planning a protest on Friday so they put out an email to parents late Thursday afternoon:
