Parents Take Over School Board, Elect New Members, Immediately Vote to End Mask Mandate
On Tuesday, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey enacted a new executive order that lifted the state’s mandate which required school children to wear masks.
In Vail, Arizona, the Vail School District scheduled a meeting on how to move forward. A crowd of parents — tired of their children being forced to wear masks — formed outside in support of overturning the mandate and allowing their children to go mask-less. Just as the meeting was set to go live, however, officials on the school board suddenly canceled it and walked out of the office after several of the parents entered. In a cowardly move, the board members then dialed 911 to report the parents for being concerned about their children.
When Pima County Sheriffs deputies arrived, they found no reason for the call. The parents, while they were certainly concerned about their children, posed no threat, were entirely peaceful, and even cordial. Due to concern that these individuals would not follow meeting protocols related to mitigating the COVID-19 virus, district officials said that they were “concerned that (they would) be unable to conduct the meeting safely,” prompting the cancelation of the meeting, reports KVOA.
“We will continue to work with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department to ensure the safety of our community for any future meetings,” the district said.
When KGUN9 asked the school board why the meeting was cancelled, an unnamed official told them that the crowd became uncontrollable. However, that was not the case at all and the entire ordeal, which lasted over an hour, was captured on video. What’s more, when KGUN9 asked the sheriff about the school board’s claims that the crowd was uncontrollable, the sheriff told them that this was not true and crowd control was not an issue. Indeed, as the video shows, the parents were polite and when asked by deputies to exit the premises, they did so.
