Mask taped to son’s face

I received an email from my son’s kindergarten teacher that she had taped my son’s mask to his face with surgical tape, and further suggested that I should invest in some. Apparently the mask was taped up over his *nose*. The teacher was impatient with him, and chose to use tape rather than adjust his mask or ask him to get one of his alternate masks which she requires them to each have in their bag. After reporting the issue, the principal informed me that each teacher also has disposable masks on hand if needed. So, my health concern is the physical taping of the mask (with surgical tape!) up over my son’s nose. Unacceptable, a most definite health hazard.

That should be considered child abuse. I would save that email and get a lawyer.

My heart breaks reading this. This is unacceptable. How can the teacher think it is in any way ok to tape the mask to a child’s face 🙁 Physical and mental abuse ! I think you definitely should make a lot of noise about it.

File a lawsuit. If enough people stand up, this will end.
