    A private NYC school reversed their decision on a mask-optional policy after receiving criticism from state health officials for going against Governor Kathy Hochul's orders. The $57,000-a-year Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn were slammed by officials after the announcement was made as they were said to be violating masking laws implemented for educational institutions. An email had been sent to students' parents on Friday saying that the previous order did not follow state as well as city mandate guidelines. Parents were then asked to ensure that their children follow normal mask policies starting on Monday. The optional masking policy had been originally announced amid a decline of cases in NYC and at the school as well as Hochul's decision to end the statewide indoor mask mandate. The policy continued to apply for schoolchildren. An official from the New York State Health Department had also communicated with the school over the concerns in the former change in policy. 'We worked with the school and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the school agreed to delay its...

    Several parents are pulling their kids out of school due to what they consider to be 'lax' COVID-19 guidelines. Mothers and fathers in Cobb County, Georgia, say schools are going against mask recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and there is no social distancing in classrooms or cafeterias.   'Every day, there's a chaotic event - entire grades sent home,' Jessica Zeigler, who has decided to remove her three children, including two with health issues, out of public county schools, told CNN. 'Every day seems like a series of terrible decisions that we have to make.'  Another parent, Sara Cavorley, took all of her five kids, including a 13-year-old who fended of leukemia as a younger child, out of school this week. 'I shouldn't have to choose between my children's life and school. That's a no-brainer. I choose my kids,' she said. Schools have begun reopening in the U.S. with most states leaving it up to local schools to decide whether to require masks.

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said Tuesday he has no plans yet to implement a statewide mask mandate, but will keep in place the current requirement that face coverings be worn inside schools. Lamont said keeping children and teachers safe remains a top priority with the school year set to begin in two weeks.

He later clarified that there will be a statewide mandate for all classrooms from kindergarten through 12th grade and it would stay in place for at least the first month of the school year. “I hope it’s not something we’ve got to do for more than a month or two, but time will tell,” he...
    Hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles Unified School District Students are set to return to classrooms Monday, with mask-wearing and weekly COVID-19 testing mandated for all pupils, teachers and staff.While the year will be a stark contrast to 2020, when all learning was done remotely, the district returns to full in-person instruction in the shadow of growing concerns about the highly infectious Delta variant of COVID-19 that has sent L.A. County case numbers and hospitalizations soaring in recent weeks.In a back-to-school speech last week, interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly said the new school year comes as people look to "retake the reins" of their lives from COVID. But the viruswill be unforgettably present as classes resume.Apart from mask-wearing , regular sanitizing on campuses and physical distancing encouraged, all students and staff will also be required to undergo weekly COVID testing, regardless of their vaccination status.Once school starts, periodic testing will be conducted during the school day at select campuses by mobile teams. Tests are free and results come back in 12 hours.Many district families flocked to some of those locations...
    Incoming New York Governor Kathy Hochul will mandate masks in schools and might even shut classrooms down again if Delta 'spirals out of control'.   Hochul was speaking on the Today show on Thursday morning when she was asked if she'd enforce masks in schools for kids - a rule that is being debated hotly across the country.  Hochul said she would enforce masks because she thinks it's the only way to ensure schools can open full-time safely, and she wants to end remote learning.   However she couldn't promise that they'd be open for good and said she may make decisions now that 'won't hold in a couple of weeks.'  It raises the question of whether she may also lockdown businesses across the state, as her predecessor did last year before finally lifting all restrictions in the summer as more adults got COVID-19 vaccines.  'I believe there will end up being mask mandates. I just don't have the authority right now.I believe this is going to be the way we have to go in order to create an environment to...

    QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. -- An Arizona mom's worst fear came true when her 5-year-old daughter tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks after her school year started.Heidi Kim's 5-year-old daughter, Irene, is in kindergarten and her 8-year-old daughter, Rosalind, is in third grade at EduPrize charter school in Queen Creek, Arizona.Kim homeschooled both of her children during the 2020 school year due to Arizona's high COVID-19 rates and to protect close friends and family that were high risk for COVID-19. This year, Kim and her husband made the decision to send their children to school on July 21 in hopes that a vaccine would soon be available for children and allow for Kim to return to work."I was really nervous about sending them back there, but I had hoped maybe in September they would be eligible for the vaccine," Kim told "Good Morning America."

    MCDONOUGH, Ga. – As Tussahaw Elementary opened this week for a new school year, teary-eyed mothers led in kindergartners dwarfed by backpacks and buses dropped off fifth graders looking forward to ruling their school. The biggest clue to the lingering COVID-19 crisis was the masks worn by students and teachers — but not all of them. Georgia, like most states, is leaving it up to local schools to decide whether to require face coverings. And 43,000-student Henry County, like many districts worn out by months of conflict over masks, has decided not to insist on them. Instead, they are "highly recommended." CLICK HERE TO FIND A COVID-19 VACCINE NEAR YOU Many parents Wednesday in this suburb south of Atlanta had mixed feelings about the policy. Some kept their children home in disagreement with it. Others sent their youngsters to class with face coverings. Shatavia Dorsey, the mother of a kindergartner and a fifth grader, said her children are going to wear their masks at school regardless of the rules. "They’re not vaccinated because they’re too young, and I don’t know...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s education commissioner said that there aren’t currently plans to instill a mask mandate for students when they return to the classrooms this fall. Dr. Heather Mueller spoke on the topic at a press conference alongside Gov. Tim Walz. Mueller said that the CDC does “recommend that students in elementary schools continue to wear masks,” but added “that is not something that can be dictated or guided or mandated by the Department of Education.” That would not necessarily be the case, however, with school buses or any forms of transportation overseen by the federal government, Mueller added. As of now, children 12 and under are not eligible to receive any COVID-19 vaccines currently in distribution. Last month, the University of Minnesota announced it would not require COVID-19 vaccinations for students in the 2021-2022 school year. Students, staff, and faculty will not be required to show proof of vaccination to live, learn, or work on campus or other university properties. Earlier in the year, WCCO asked Dr. George Morris of CentraCare about what vaccinated parents of children under...
