Must See: Toddlers Forced To Mask Up While Chewing Food

While many Washington schools are starting to abolish harsh COVID restrictions on children after public outcry, some schools are doubling down on demanding regulations. Like many other area schools, Queen Anne Elementary School in Seattle is forcing children as young as Kindergarten to eat meals outside.

In an email to parents, the school has praised children that are "…bringing yoga mats and towels to sit on, and staff and I have marked off 6 ft. distances so students know their 'spots' on the basketball court.'"

Children are moved to covered areas while still sitting six feet apart to socially distance when it rains.

However, "…if the rain is 'coming down sideways' …students whose parents have completed the Eating in the Cafeteria Permission Form During Extreme Weather would be given the choice of continuing to eat under the covers and make 'the best of it,' or go inside to the cafeteria."

According to the schools Extreme Weather Cafeteria Use, students will be socially distanced in their "eating spots" in the cafeteria.

The email then added, "Eating indoors will be a silent, 'focused on eating' affair, meaning that students will sit, get out their lunch, slip off mask, return mask between bites, and eat silently."

"When finished, students will put their masks back on and exit the cafeteria."

On Monday, Seattle Public Schools sent out their own email to parents, prompting many to be concerned that a return to remote learning was inevitable. The email summarized conditions that, if met, would bring back the restrictions. Some of these included:

Franklin High School and Kimball Elementary School have already canceled classes on Monday. It remains to be seen if anything in the district will follow suit.

Lake Washington High School in Kirkland also returned to remote learning which they claim is temporary due to staffing shortages and absences. Last week, Superintendent of Public Schools for Washington, Chris Reykdal, said that some school districts may close over the next few weeks.

The original email outlining the restrictions for lunchtime was revealed in October. Parents told The Post Millennial that the practice continued until winter break. The school did not reply to a request for comment, asking if the restrictions were still in place following the return to school after the vacation.
