Georgia, a school superintendent allows teachers to wear jeans to alleviate pleas for district-wide mask mandate.
Bulloch County School District Superintendent Charles Wilson sent an email encouraging to help teachers to be more comfortable in classrooms.
The email reads:
“I realize that words can only go so far, especially when one is doing so much. But I still have to reach out and say thank you for all that you are doing for our students and for each other.
Everyone fights their own battles, but all of you are angels and heroes to our children, and they need you. Please remember that.
I talked with principals today, and we all agreed that, though it is a small gesture, you would enjoy the liberty of wearing jeans for the next month,” Wilson wrote. “So, by all means, please enjoy your jeans throughout the month of September (and the rest of August).”
The email offended teachers, citing rising COVID cases and the need for a mask mandate to protect students and staff.
Hundreds of students in the district tested positive for COVID in the first three weeks of school.
Masks are currently optional in the school district, and exposed students can still attend school as long as they are asymptomatic.
