COVID: Maryland School Forcing Third Graders to Wear an N-95 Mask

COVID: Maryland School Forcing Third Graders to Wear an N-95 Mask

This is just….you know what I’m thinking.

This is child cruelty.

Third-graders at Rosemary Hills Elementary School in Montgomery County, MD, must wear an N95 mask after some students tested positive for COVID.

OutKick Founder Clay Travis posted a letter the school allegedly sent to the parents.

“Additional KN95 masks have been distributed and students and staff in identified classes or activities will be required to mask while in school for the next 10 days, except when eating or drinking,” wrote Principal Rebecca Irwin Kennedy. “Masks will become optional again following the 10 day period.”

The schools will also make COVID-19 tests available for the families.

Excuse me. If I had a third-grader at that school, I would not comply and cause a ruckus.

When was the last time a school gave a damn about a flu outbreak? How about pneumonia?

These people are insane. But they’re super duper cereal (spelled that way on purpose…watch South Park’s Al Gore episode) because they make the kids use those fancy N95 masks!

Will any parents push back?

They’re just getting us ready for the elections next year so they can pull the same ‘irregularities’ that happened in 2020.

Worked for them once with ballots all over the mail, early voting, special drop boxes…you know, easily manipulated crap so they can win an election.

Theyre just starting with school kids, but it will spread.

The demand to wear masks is downright stupid, and to demand for youngsters to wear masks is beyond idiotic. Multiple randomized tests have shown masks do nothing, nada, to prevent the Wu flu. Making people wear masks is to pretend to be doing something, or malevolently to assert control. Demanding that youngsters wear masks is even more useless. Children overwhelmingly do not get the Wu flu, and when they do, they survive. Unfortunately, the Maoist State Media have been hyping what they claim to be a spike in the Wu flu. When I look at the data, I find it very difficult to see the spike the media claim to be there. Certainly, deaths from the Wu flu are way down. This mask mandate for these children is beyond idiotic.

We have known for decades that these masks are less than worthless (as an emergency responder and worker in the nuclear weapons industry I taught this from the start of my career 30+ years ago) and yet they still feel the need to try and maintain a lie that only they believe anymore. They have become the Baghdad Bob of health via fear porn. These people are too foolish to understand that only diehard Leftists believe this claptrap anymore and that by making these demands they are destroying what little credibility and election support they had left.

“For the next ten days, my child will not be attending classes. Please send her homework to me.”
Get your message across.
If enough warm bodies don’t appear in class, wouldn’t the school’s funding drop?

    If it’s virulent/disabling enough to require masks, then why is anyone even going? Seems the school needs a full decontamination over the next several weeks, and the teachers and administrators need to be quarantined (not at home; noooo, in an institution where they can be closely observed for symptoms while totally isolated from anyone).

    I mean, it IS dangerous, right? It IS going to kill all these people, right? It HAS to be stopped at all costs, right? Won’t you teachers do it for the kids?

    “If enough warm bodies don’t appear in class, wouldn’t the school’s funding drop?”

    Nope. Maryland funds schools through taxing all residents, not just those with kids enrolled.

    They get their money no matter how many show up.

    Gremlin1974 in reply to herm2416. | September 6, 2023 at 5:46 pm

    That is different from State to State. In my state schools get funds from the schools based on attendance per day. So say that each booty in a seat gets them $20 (totally made up number), then each seat that is not filled up to their max number of seats is $20 less than they get. That is usually above their standard budget, which are kept lower because of this set up.

I find it interesting that while this is a public school, there doesn’t seem to be any published test score data available for it. In fact, I can’t find any testing data for schools in Montgomery County Public School District.

    Overall just 19% of students in Maryland were competent in math for their grade level. In the Baltimore region it was less than 5%. That’s right, 95% of kids can’t do math at their grade level but lets worry about face diapers on people that have a near 0% chance of getting severely ill from any Covid variant.

Won’t the mask wearing interfere with the tots’ search for gender identity?

Become ungovernable. Refuse masks.

TY Mary This is child cruelty

This is also absurd.. they think N95 masks are magic, or something? .

Masks are not respirators. Look it up. N95 respirators can be effective for some things.. but they need to be fitted, and NOT removed. Children will be taking them on and off.. it is ridiculous from the git go.

Just more fear mongering, and the children suffer. It’s a gd cold,, for most people. SMH

I don’t trust the FDA,,,nope.. but here is a general type of discussion re masks, respirators, etc. If anyone is interested.

With each new instance of Covid fear porn the bifurcation becomes more clear among individuals and among jurisdictions. Some will continue to passively go along with it while others will passively refuse. The Covid Karens should be wary of the day when those who refuse stop being passive and decide to ratchet up their own actions to meet or exceed the aggression of the Covid Karens.

As others have noted, Wuhan Flu isn’t that dangerous to kids (really, not at all, unless there’s some other big issue). And you shouldn’t be sending a symptomatic kid to school, no matter what is causing it. And masks don’t do much of anything with healthy, non-symptomatic* people.

(* If you’re being gross – coughing, sneezing, dribbling – then, yes, a mask will help reduce the viral load you’re shedding. You’re also gonna need to replace your mask frequently, ’cause eeewwwwww.)

BTW, wasn’t training the children to be germophobes one of the elements of Brave New World?

If you have the money, find a private school for your kids. Even then you have to make sure it’s not woke and they are following the science, not the ScienceTM. It’s a culture war. And, Mary, if you tried to resist at this school you and your child would be canceled and ostracized on the community and you might get a visit from Child Services. It’s time for everyone to read Kafka again.

    CommoChief in reply to Stuytown. | September 6, 2023 at 12:10 pm

    Reading Kafka is a good idea. A better idea is to read it when living in a sane jurisdiction. Pack your crap and depart. Deny the woke, lefty d/prog jurisdiction your taxes, the economic impact of your local spending, the cumulative political power of Congressional reapportionment and those federal tax dollars doled out by population.

I was told that FOX reported today that Rand Paul said that not a single child under 18 without a co-morbidity died from Covid and that there has been a significant increase in heart issues with those who have gotten 3 or more shots.

    Joe-dallas in reply to jb4. | September 6, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    Agree that virtually no child died from Covid with the exception of those children who were already suffering from a life threatening disease. further agree that masking retards the natural development of the childs immune system. stopping kids from catching germs is good in short term, but creates long term problems.

    Not sure about the 3 vax shots causing higher rates of heart issues, that being said, the rates of child / young adult heart issues is very close to being statistically the same whether from vax or from natural covid infection. The heart issue from vax is heavily overblown. though there remains no reason for children to get vaxed.

The parents of all children who have any sort of speech impediment or any type of delayed developmental issue should band together and sue the daylights out of anyone and everyone involved in these mandates.

    These are children of Democrat voters, “students” who don’t actually have to earn a passing grade in even a single field of knowledge in order to get promoted and to graduate.
    Really, what’s left to lose?

Dear Principal:

Thank you for your letter. I forwarded a copy to my attorney to memorialize your taking full responsibility and liability to “[…] prevent further transmission of Covid-19 in this group”. We can infer that any and all airborne virus transmission within the entire property is also under the jurisdiction of your medical expertise as a “Principal”.

Further, a copy of this letter will be sent to N95 mask manufacturers to bring to their attention future liability should a wearer contract Covid-19 while using their product in a manner as directed by you or any employee of the school.

Stay safe,

Well shoot, why not just go all in and give everyone a radiation removal shower (Silkwood shower) while we’re at it?
When I was young I used to like sleeping with the covers over my head for some reason. My mother told me repeatedly not to do it because it would reduce the oxygen to my brain, resulting in bad dreams.
Yup, one big effing nightmare with this b.s. the past few years.

Parents, just don’t do it. You don’t have to call the schools or send emails inquiring as to why the stupid policy. Just say no. Simple.

It’s not just control to make people more docile. I think a significant portion of the population is nuts and addicted to wearing their “Covid charms” to ward off eeevil!

    wearing their “Covid charms” to ward off eeevil!
    This is closer to the truth than you might intend. For the deeply sheepish cult-followers of Progressivism, that’s precisely what it is. It’s a totem to wave at the heathens and to keep away their evil eye breath. If the priests and prophets told them to stuff dirty socks in their ears to prevent hearing the utterances of Trump, many of them would immediately be seen driving through town with socks in their ears. (And doctors would amend the old saw of “Never stick anything but your elbows in your ears” to include “and dirty socks!”) “Racism” and “bigot” are the same, except they’re totem words, instead of objects.

    “When I was young I used to like sleeping with the covers over my head for some reason.”
    It’s for the same reason babies go to sleep with less trouble if you place their crowns against the headboard. And the reason is obvious if you give it some thought.
    The same technique works reliably for adults, too. It’s a handy life hack.

The asians in Portland have been wearing them for decades. Even when outside by themselves. We aren’t as far removed from burning witches as we are led to believe.

Bucky Barkingham | September 6, 2023 at 1:37 pm

Without a doubt any parent refusing to allow their child to wear the mask will be reported to authorities for child abuse.

The seasonal Flu kills more children than COVID ever dreamed of.

AF_Chief_Master_Sgt | September 6, 2023 at 2:38 pm

And why do we care whether a school in Marylandstan requires children to wear masks?

Parents are responsible for their child’s health, education, and protection.

If parents send their children to this school knowing full well that they will be required to wear masks, then they need to STFU and stop complaining about it.

I no longer live in Montgomery County MD. I left years ago to join the military, and had to go back occasionally at the behest do Uncle Sam. But I left every opportunity I got, and never looked back.

Good luck to the parents who aren’t inclined to force COVID scare on their kids.

Breaking them in while they are young, on the road to Cultural Marxism

So once again the “Follow the Science” people are not. N-95 masks are Useless unless properly fitted, so they may as well be maskless, even if they actually did work, which most post Plandemic studies are now showing they don’t.

Typical parent:

We have to have two incomes in order to live in a neighborhood with good public schools. So we can’t afford to remove our children from public schools and homeschool or send them to a private school.


Move to a less expensive neighborhood. Move to a state with school choice. You can pay now (in money and effort) or you can pay much more later (in the damage to your children).

Government schools – America’s best example of totalitarian socialism.
