Just because everybody else is doing it doesn’t make it right. Just because a handful of medical experts say it’s so, doesn’t make it true. Such is the case with Covid-19 and schools. We’ve been told that schools had to be shut down because ‘the kids are superspreaders’ – until medical evidence proved otherwise. We’ve been told masks stop the spread of Covid-19 – until medical research again proved otherwise. Thankfully not everyone believed the narrative about the Covid pLandemic. It appears numerous Christian schools in Florida kept their heads and not only allowed their students to return to live classrooms in the Fall of 2020, but did so without requiring masks, choosing to treat Covid-19 the same way they treated other health crises like the seasonal flu. The result – students enjoyed lived school and live sports, had little to no positive cases of the virus, and now are well on their way to herd immunity in the community! Don’t you wish your school district had done the same?
For more on this topic, we’re sharing a story written by Brian Kolfage as published on The Gateway Pundit and shown below, HOWEVER it’s important to note that the school noted below in Brian’s story is only one of NUMEROUS private Christian schools in Florida who have followed a similar approach.
Florida School Combated COVID By Going Back to Normal – As a Result the Children and Teachers Are Safe and Happy
(Brian Kolfage is a war hero and founder of We Build the Wall)
At least one school in Florida addressed the COVID-19 pandemic by looking at the data and science and putting in policies that made sense. The result is the children and teachers are safe and happy and all are back to normal living.
I have 2 young children who are in Kindergarten and first grade at a private Christian school here in Florida. Like all other schools across the United States, we were forced to homeschool when the pandemic hit. Following the summer there was a plethora of data available that proved school aged children were the least impacted by the virus. There was no reason children should not have started school with normalcy anywhere in the USA after learning this data.
When August rolled around, we were pleased to get a message from our children’s school that they would resume normal school operations. No social distancing, no masks, no plexiglass cages around the desks (example below), just normalcy once again as it should be.
The school stated they would treat the virus like any other virus. They were not going to shut down the school, classes, quarantine groups of exposed children and faculty, they were applying common sense using data to create a solution that worked. They were doing the exact opposite that Democrat-controlled states and school districts did.
They did not deny anyone from wearing a mask, however, they said they would not be mask police (like below) and force any child to wear a mask nor encourage them to wear one. In fact, no one here wears masks, I’ve yet to wear one this entire pandemic, I practice herd immunity.
When a child had any symptom of being sick, they were not forced to take a COVID test, they were sent home until their symptoms were gone, then they returned to class. This is the exact same procedure for any virus any other year that they follow. Only a small fraction of kids in the school were affected by COVID and I believe only one teacher had it. By simply having kids practice good hygiene and washing hands they effectively were able to not only control the spread of the virus but were able to do what no other school in the nation did, maintain normalcy for the children.
I now see why people are fleeing their homes in Democrat controlled states to live in Florida.
It’s now January 2021, five months into the school year and there have been no large-scale outbreaks, no deaths, and no ridiculous COVID-19 restrictions. Our children are allowed to play sports, socialize and be normal. We didn’t need any vaccine to restrict the virus, kids aren’t as susceptible and most don’t have symptoms period.
The school gave all the teachers the option to work, if they feared the virus they were not forced to work. There was no need to shutdown schools across the nation for a virus that was not deadly to most young healthy adults. Like President Trump stated, the response shouldn’t be worse than the virus itself.
And now LA County is talking about making it mandatory for children to get the vaccine to attend school. This is child abuse, why would any parent force a vaccine that has not been tested for long term abnormalities into a child who is not at any elevated risk?
At some point the line must drawn and the high risk must be the ones who take the action to self-isolate rather than forcing an entire nation to shutter its doors, and kill commerce of the local economy. It’s time to follow the data and make decisions based off that rather than decisions based on fear.
