Tuesday the Globe reported on a student at Rio Americano High School suspended for not wearing a mask in class, despite having a doctor’s medical exemption. The girl’s mother reported her daughter was harassed, threatened and bullied by the school principal, teachers and the school resource officer, despite being told to back down by the school district’s lawyer.
The school Principal even called the sheriff on the mother when she asked him why he ignored the doctor-authorized medical exemption from the mask and face shield, and on what grounds he was suspending her. All of this is recorded on the mom’s phone, including the exchange with a Sheriff’s Deputy.
Despite the public humiliation and harassment, the student endured as much as possible, and stood her ground.
She was rewarded with #NoMaskWednesday.
Late in the day, her mom reported “Kids from Rio Americano High School reached out to my daughter with this flier they made. It is now circulating around on social media. I believe 1,500 views.”
Students and teachers witnessed the mother stand her ground as she defended her daughter. The mother and daughter now know they are supported.
There is strength in numbers.
