My daughter is 13 and in 8th grade. She’s always been a great student and loves school. I gave my children the choice to go back and be forced to wear a mask or do virtual or homeschool. My son chose to homeschool but my daughter really wanted to be back at school. However in the 1st quarter she chose to do virtual hoping that the covid craze would end. When she had the option to go back to in person school masked she decided the mask would be worth the socialization she missed so much after 8 months. She complains of headaches nearly everyday. The only “break” they get is during lunch. She has now developed a painful under nose acne/rash from the daily moisture build up. She says by her last period (science) she’s so tired and uncomfortable she has a hard time concentrating. This is also her favorite subject so she loves this class but having the mask on all day makes the class difficult. I should mention our whole family had covid so even if masks worked it’s completely useless for her to wear one being its highly unlikely she could catch or spread covid now. We shouldn’t be masked but our children definitely shouldn’t be.
