Letter to the editor – August 14, 2021

Dear editor,

As a parent and community member, I am concerned about the USD 257 Board’s decision to make face masks optional. We know that there is an overwhelming consensus among pediatricians, immunologists, and public health officials that universal masking significantly reduces the spread of infections. 

We know that the delta variant, which is now dominant in Kansas, results in more pediatric cases and more frequent hospitalizations of children.
