San Bernardino city schools require all adults and children on campus to wear masks. The picture on page 6 showing students returning to school for the first day was very disturbing. All the adults in the picture were wearing masks except for the three adults "welcoming" the students back. The two deputies and the mayor of Highland were not wearing face coverings. What message does this send to the students and staff about these adult role models? What do we tell the children who ask why these adults were not wearing masks?
Editor’s note: On school campuses, masks are required indoors. The photo was taken outdoors.
