Washington State Kindergarteners Forced To Eat Lunch Outside In Near Freezing Temps To Curb Covid
School closures and mask mandates have been disastrous for children, stunting their social and intellectual development. Despite this, many states and school districts kept schools closed long after it was revealed that Covid-19 presents a minimal threat to the safety of children. This year, 16 states still have mask mandates in public schools. Democratic Governors and school boards played politics, and our children have paid the price. A school district in Washington is forcing children to eat outside in near-freezing temperatures. The Post Millenial Reports–
“When they return from winter break, students as young as kindergarten at Lakeview Elementary School will be forced to resume the practice of eating lunch outside, including on days when temperatures would be “expected to be above 38 degrees.” According to a January 2 email obtained by The Post Millennial, Heather Frazier, principal of the school which services children K through 5 grade, informed parents, “On Sundays, during January-February I will send a brief message indicating whether students will be eating indoors due to frigid weather in the coming week. This week students will remain eating outdoors as temperatures are expected to be above 38 degrees.” The email signed off with “stay warm.” The climate of fear surrounding Covid-19 in K-12 schools has severely impaired children’s cognitive development and mental health.
Dr. Mark McDonald cited an August 11 study by Brown University (pdf) that found that “children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic,” during an interview with host Cindy Drukier on a December 25 episode of NTD’s “The Nation Speaks.”

Notes from the Editor
This is where we have gotten with the madness of these Covid Mandates; we are forcing children, who are the least at risk for contracting or suffering any effects from Covid, to eat their lunches in the cold.
If this were my child, I would tell the school that I would be by to pick up my child for lunch or tell them homeschooling at this point sounds like a more sane option.
We need to start to demand that reasonable solutions be reached. This is not for the sake of protecting the children; they are at little or no risk; this is more for the teachers. If the older teachers are at risk, have them not sit with the children in lunch and bring in volunteers.
But it is more than this; this is more about control, training the children to do as demanded, to wear masks, not because it makes sense, but because Big Brother told you to.
