Several protests were held Wednesday across Northern California, with students and parents speaking up against mask mandates in schools. At Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills, students said they were tired of wearing masks in the classroom. “I think it should be optional,” freshman Jonas Merrill said. “It’s totally your choice. But I think if you don’t want one, you don’t have to wear one.”


The El Dorado Union High School District announced Tuesday not a change in its mask requirement, but a change in masking enforcement policies.


“The enforcement of masking will be done by educating students and asking them to mask but no further actions of exclusion from class will be taken. Moving forward students will not be physically removed from the classroom or receive a discipline consequence to prevent further exclusionary learning loss. CDPH guidance does not require exclusion, but legal precedent determined exclusion is lawful.”
