Please sign my petition to keep masks optional for kids in East Longmeadow schools.

This month the East Longmeadow School Committee unanimously voted against mandating masks for students.  Since that vote, a small but loud group of residents has started a petition to mandate masks in the town’s schools.

I started this petition for East Longmeadow residents who support the school committee’s decision to make masks optional for our kids.  My hope is to collect more signatures than those seeking to impose masks on everyone and to show the committee members that East Longmeadow parents want the right to choose on this issue.

If we don’t speak up now, masks could once again be forced on our children.
