I agree boycott the whole fiasco.  I wouldn't go even if I was given free everything to go.

Over 7% MIA at the schools down here the last 3 days as of yday so they're starting a mask mandate today. I expect no walk out, however. :rolleyes: https://www.fox9.com/news/st-paul-students-stage-walkout-over-covid-19-issues-call-for-return-to-distance-learning

I think their student leader is being a bit melodramatic.   :doofus:

No kidding. Amazing how these little mush brains have all the sudden become COVID experts. Once can just about imagine where they're getting their info from.  :rolleyes: Sounding like this thing is starting to peak. As fast as cases went up with this omicron variant, they are coming back down just as quickly in places like South Africa where it was first detected. Now just  watch the cases go down and they can claim these mask mandates made all the difference... :bonk:

 :scratch: Your right glenn, I didn't see any #'s on how many walked out or what % of the school actually participated. :confused: The added testing they want would cost $1.6 mil/week :crazy: & SPSD said they have no plans of doing that, especially with plenty of commiunity testing sites already available.

Back in my high school days we had walk-outs concerning Viet Nam. We likely got our information the same place the kids these days are. It was kind of nice walking out back then before the responsibility of jobs, families, politics become part of your life.

It's probably because MPLS district went on a 2 week distance learning and Jerome be sayen this Bull Shat!  We want to skip school at home too!  Love it when the kids start using the "This is an equity issue" against their brain washers!!
They taught them well!   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

"This is an equity issue. This is life and death," said walkout organizer Jerome Treadwell of Mn Teen Activists.
The students want the district to return to distance learning for two weeks

These kids are just watching the news and learning that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. 

I'll bet 50% of the kids in the walk-out actually prefer to be in school, but walk out because peer pressure or they don't want to miss out on being part of the "It" thing to do.

Meanwhile, in Stillwater...

School Expels First Grader for Not Wearing a Mask

The school board of St. Croix Prep voted UNANIMOUSLY to expel the student, who has an individualized education program (IEP) for delayed speech and other learning problems

The academy serves 1,200 students from kindergarten through 12th grade, but only K-8th grade students were required to wear a mask during school hours, says Jake Lee.

“The kids walk through the same doors, they eat in the same cafeteria, they’re standing in the same hallways and waiting in the same spaces for the buses,” said Lee.

Having a different mask policy by age appears to be related to the demand for slots, says Lee.  “They have waiting lists for the lower grades, but there is no waiting list for the upper grades,” said Lee.


Didn't that l'il 1st grade shaver with a speech problem realize he was putting lives at risk?   :confused:

"We do not want to die to receive our education...," said Treadwell.   :angry2:

First thing you do is hit each of the parents over the head with a 2x4. Then you hit the kid with one if he doesn't toe the line.  Oh ya, you can't do that.  It may be bad for the kid.   :confused:  WTF is wrong with this world.  No respect from anyone.

I should have been more clear about my post.

The first grader didn't say the part about not wanting to die in school.  That quote was from the student agitator who organized the St. Paul high school walk out - my post from earlier in the day.

I just thought it was weird that a 1st grader with learning disabilities gets expelled because he has trouble wearing a mask compared to these "enlightened" high schoolers demanding on-line learning because they want to see how much they can get away with.

Over 7% MIA at the schools down here the last 3 days as of yday so they're starting a mask mandate today. I expect no walk out, however. :rolleyes: https://www.fox9.com/news/st-paul-students-stage-walkout-over-covid-19-issues-call-for-return-to-distance-learning
:scratch: :bonk: Forgot to mention that the school's mask mandate here only lasts through Sunday.

 :doah: :tut: Because the plan they have in effect needs a 7% absentee threshold for 3 straight days in order to be implemented. They must believe they'll be below that level by then. They did require masks for most of the last school year though until the courts ruled they couldn't.

Did a little more checkin & it's only the highschool here. The new mask mandate is in effect for 10 days when it's put in effect & it was officially put in effect on Friday, 1/14. So it's over on Sunday, 1/23. So with the weekend & MLK day Tuesday was really the 1st day of masks here.
