    Parents protest lack of virus mandates in Grosse Pointe schools; others applaud

    Grosse Pointe Farms — Parents worried about increased COVID transmission rates and their children’s return to school in the fall, and those who support relaxed policies lined up Monday night with familiar positions: follow the numbers or let parents decide. 

    Hours into a Grosse Pointe Public School System Board of Education meeting, parents yelled out as the superintendent, Jon Dean, announced that the district would not be enforcing a mask mandate in schools. News emerged Friday that in addition to not requiring masks, the district also would not mandate social distancing.

    “Show us the data!” some parents said as others joined in agreement, pressing the district to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. 

    Others balked at a return to strict mandates, saying parents should be allowed to choose whether or not their children mask up.
