Council Bluffs parent sues governor over ban on face mask requirements in schools

A Council Bluffs mother is suing the state to end its ban on schools enacting face mask requirements.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in a district court in Polk County on behalf of Frances Parr, who has two young children who attend Council Bluffs public schools.

The suit names Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, state Public Health Director Kim Garcia and state Education Director Ann Lebo as defendants.

The ban was approved by the Republican-led Iowa Legislature and signed into law by Reynolds, also a Republican, in May.

The suit says the ban violates the rights of Parr’s children and other students “to attend school without a threat of contracting COVID-19 or the delta variant, the symptoms of which could lead to hospitalization, permanent physical harm, emotional harm and even death.”

1. Teachers and staff suffer these threats as well

only 5-10% of the kids in the school where I work are wearing masks. On the other hand, only 20% or so of staff and teachers do as well, mostly older ones. And my doc wonders why my blood pressure is up ....

2. I think my BP would be off the scale if my kids were still in school today.

It's hard enough dealing with everyday school problems for parents, students, teachers and staff. Then add the incompetence of our elected officials to it...
