San Diego, Calif. (November 12, 2021) – On Monday, November 8, 2021, San Diego Superior Court Judge Cynthia Freeland heard arguments to determine if the lawsuit brought by Let Them Breathe and Reopen California Schools against the California Department of Public Health and Governor Newsom over the state’s masking, quarantining, testing protocols would move forward.

Today, Judge Freeland issued a ruling.

“There simply is no language in the Guidance, however, that requires, directs, or otherwise authorizes schools to force students into an independent study program.”

Judge Freeland wrote in her order regarding the state’s
school mask mandate.

Father's Amazing Speech To Nashville School Board To Stop Child Mask Mandates

Standing Up Against Mandate Success Stories

End Child Mask Mandates

This is an open letter to Chris Evan’s and the NUSD Board of Directors:
 
A growing group of NUSD parents have had enough of the mask mandates and will not stand for the soon to be vaccine mandates. We parents have seen no scientific evidence that shows masking and vaccinating our kids make our community more safe.
 
In fact, since mask mandates started back in mid-2020, the suicide rate among teens has skyrocketed. Discussions of self-harm and other terrible things have dramatically increased, depression, all increasing as we forced our kids to wear masks all day at school. 
 
Please reply back to me with the scientific evidence that has convinced you that masks and vaccinating children make our community more healthy. 
 
If you plan to reply with a dismissive comment such as “we follow what the state directs us to do”, then you may as well resign because you obviously do not have our kids best interests at heart. 
 
We look forward to seeing the science that has convinced you masking and vaccine mandates are a good idea.

Open Volunteer Positions

We Need Your Help!

Email us at join@openupschools.com and we’ll be in touch with next steps to get you started.

Open Positions (In no particular order):

Emailers & Phone Callers. We need you to call and email our representatives. See our Email Action Center (Coming Soon!) for an easy 1,2,3 process to let our voices be heard.

Legal Support. Receiving a letter from a law firm is much more impactful than from an angry parent. If you’re an attorney who wants their kids to go back to school, we could use your help. We have a lot of officials to contact and we’ll be brushed aside like flies without some legal support.

Teachers & School Faculty. Teachers voices reach much further than do parents. If you teachers and faculty are unwilling to speak up, we have a much longer road ahead of us.

Testimonials. Are you in a particularly hard situation? Is your child suffering? Share your story. Email us join@openupschools.com

Social Media Sharers. Share on your Facebook our Official Facebook group Reopen Schools.

Roadmap

Thanks to feedback from all of you, we’ve got a vision for this website! Here’s what’s on the agenda:

Blog / Vlog / Media Center: Send us a video explaining the impact of school closures on your family. Email us your story and we’ll post it on the blog. Are you a writer? We’ll set you up as a guest blogger and you can write articles on here.

Credible Source Center. We will consolidate credible sources that are calling for schools to re-open. Here are a few examples:
CDC Makes The Case For Schools Reopening
Data and Policy to Guide Opening Schools Safely

Feedback Form. Create a Google form for feedback and ideas on what message we want to move forward with.

Why haven't our schools reopened?

If you have a child currently going to a school in the NUSD or you know someone who does and you want to see schools reopened please join our cause.

Who and what is the power structure that is keeping schools closed? 

– Gavin Newsom – Governor
– Peter Beilenson – Director of Health Services (appointed Aug.12, 2018. article here)

 

Acronyms To Know:

Pre-Shutdown Learning (PSL): The structure and schedule of education before February 2020. The way life used to be.

Who and what is the power structure that is keeping schools closed? 

Whether or not you admit it to yourself, we parents are being mislead. Covid may be the reason for the shutdown, but it’s not the cause of the shutdown. The cause of the shutdown is from the California State Government being influenced by the teachers union. See this timeline of events here for evidence of this.

Who and what is the power structure that is keeping schools closed? 

– Gavin Newsom – Governor
– Peter Beilenson – Director of Health Services (appointed Aug.12, 2018. article here)

Our mission to have schools re-open safely back to pre-shutdown operations. We are non-partisan, but unfortunately politics plays a huge role in keeping our schools shut. Our next steps will be to investigate who is actually pulling the strings to keep our schools closed. Who or what is influencing our State and County Health Directors to keep our schools closed?
