Governor Glenn Youngkin signed Executive Order 2 (EO-2) allowing parents to opt their children out of school mask mandates.
Join other parents by signing this open letter, telling your school and district officials you are exercising your right as a parent to send your children to school without masks, and you expect them to treat your children with dignity and respect.
Feel free to customize this letter and send it to your children’s principal and teachers, as well as your school board.
Thank you for standing with Virginia’s children. We are stronger together.
Dear Virginia School Leaders,
As of Monday, January 24th, 2022, our children will be arriving at school without masks.
Pursuant to Governor Glenn Youngkin’s Executive Order 2 (EO-2), we are exercising our rights as parents to opt our children out of the mandatory mask policy.
Under no circumstances do we authorize the school to provide our children with masks, encourage them to put on masks or treat them any differently than their masked peers. If you have a question about our decision, please contact us directly.
Thank you for your cooperation, continued respectful, equitable treatment of our children and dedication to helping them thrive.
