Wearing a mask all day at school has led to anxiety, shortness of breath, lightheadedness for my child during most days of in-person learning. In addition, he is utterly lonely in school because all of the children must socially distance so they cannot communicate, especially at lunch. Children thrive and crave social interactions, especially with peers. Additionally, sitting in front of a computer on virtual days is not good for my child, either, but I suppose this is part of the plan because they are required to use Google Classroom. All athletic activities after school are cancelled, and gym class consists of the children walking outside on the track with their masks and socially distanced. So much for getting fresh air, not to mention potential dental issues due to lack of oxygen in his blood due to the mask.
