‘WE’RE SERIOUS’: BAY AREA PARENTS TO PROTEST SCHOOL VACCINE MANDATES BY KEEPING KIDS HOME MONDAY

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Children will be at the center of a statewide protest on Monday, if organizers have their way.

The plan is to speak up, by not showing up, according to various social media posts by those organizing a campaign to keep their kids home from school on Monday — to protest Governor Gavin Newsom’s COVID vaccine mandate.

“We know that if our children stay home from school that that will impact the funding that schools will get for that day,” said parent Babe Prieto, who supports the walkout. “And we want them to know that we’re serious about not being forced to vaccinate our children.”

California schoolchildren who attend in-person will be required to get the COVID-19 vaccine, once its fully approved. Enforcement could begin as early as January, but more likely in July.

  1. Just separate the schools based on if they get the vaccine. So all the kids at one school are unvaccinated while a different school across town has all the students vaccinated. Plus you can keep the school students separate from the other classes and have lunch in the classroom.
