“…You’re a power hungry fascist…”
Last week we received a response from the office of Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (r) complying with our December 9th RSMo § 610 “Missouri Sunshine Law” request for the contents of the email@example.com email address set up by the Attorney General to solicit complaints about mask wearing in Missouri public schools.
Subject: Protect my children!
I am yet another concerned parent within the Rockwood School District. We became part of the Rockwood family 1.5 years ago. We were formally with Parkway, (who have even deeper issues than I am here to get into.) I have never had a negative thing to say about Rockwood. The exceeded my expectations and my children couldn’t be happier in a tremendous staff-filled school. With that being said, It’s hard to believe I am going to this magnitude and writing you this letter.
I read on a local social media page that the children at Eureka Elementary, who decided to not wear their masks today we’ve outted from their fellow classmates, and normal learning environment to be singled out like animals we enjoy looking at through glass at the zoo.
I come to you with this message to ask for your continuous help. I worry if this continuous battle between Rockwood School District and the community will be detrimental, to not only my children’s education, but their friendships, their views on trusted adults at the school, and the future generation we are shaping into. School is the only place I cannot protect my children and their rights.
I thank you for your time and all of your help.
Hang in there,
“…We were formally with Parkway, (who have even deeper issues than I am here to get into.)…”
Really? Do tell.
“…I have never had a negative thing to say about Rockwood…”
Wait for it.
“…It’s hard to believe I am going to this magnitude…”
Apparent, absolute, Richter, or pomposity?
“…I read on a local social media page…”
Ah, the font of all truth and knowledge.
They’re kids in elementary school, they don’t just spontaneously decide to not wear their masks. What kind of parent does it take to send their elementary school age kid in to confront their teachers in this manner?
“…I come to you with this message to ask for your continuous help…”
He’s the Attorney General, not the second incarnation of Eric Greitens (r).
“…I worry if this continuous battle between…”
Too late. You should have thought of that before you started it.
Subject: Mask-mandates in schools
Good evening. As a voter, school teacher, and a parent with a child in 4th grade, I think that we should have a mandatory mask mandate for our schools. It is a crime to choose otherwise. Our students as well as the staff need to be protected. It would be a travesty as well as a tragedy. Please reconsider. [….]
Subject: We stand behind you!
Just kidding. You’re a power hungry fascist. LOL.
No, actually, you are. And that’s sad for you, and scary for me. You don’t represent me, my needs or my priorities. My taxes pay your salary, and that makes me naseous.
Your deperate, unfounded, anachronistic lust for control (guidance) is rationalized by hypocritical religious pablum. You know that, right? In your heart, you do, right. You’re not so dumb that you don’t right?
You’re building a house of cards, Eric, and it will eventually crush you.
Subject: Illegal? Hell, no!
Are you opposed to public health measures because you, in accord with your fellow travelers in the GQC, are in favor of death? In your case, that seems especially focussed on teachers and children.
Opposition to public health is not a platform. I have yet to hear you advance any positive agenda whatsoever. Nothing to offer the people of this state to improve their lives, health, or happiness. You offer nothing but death.
You need to resign and disappear. We could hardly hate you more.
We see what you did there.
Subject: Mask Mandate
Dear Atty General Schmitt —
You are truly a moron – I WANT a mask mandate as I would love for my kids to be able to go to school without being afraid of dying. Go peddle your crap somewhere else.
Registered voter who votes in EVERY election BUT NOT FOR YOU.
Subject: Francis Howell School District
FHSD continues to mandate masks for students K-6th grade but makes them optional for 7-12 grade. Our youngest and most affected psychologically continue to be punished with these ridiculous mandates. Please help our kids. They also continue to quarantine students.
Subject: Raytown South High School
Attorney General Schmitt,
I just left a basketball game at Raytown South High School where they required masks for entry and had multiple PA announcements demanding compliance.
For some reason the prison camp scene in the original Red Dawn comes to mind. Wolverines!
Subject: Wright City School District
To: Attorney General Eric Schmitt
The Wright City School District is not complying with the cease & desist letter/order. Students are being required to quarantine, miss activities, and in some cases isolated while in school for not complying.
Please help our children.
This is so sad.
Subject: Cease & Desist Denial – RSD
To whom it may concern,
Additional emails need to be requested from Rockwood School District, specifically within the Uthoff Valley Elementary. I cannot provide a direct copy for fear of being made known through such an act. Email traffic from today within Uthoff valley will show acknowledgement of the cease and desist letter, but still a blatant disregard for it. Kids were still told to mask.
Just the traffic?
Subject: Parkway mask mandates
As a Parkway employee who is occasionally responsible for filling in for bus drivers, we are still required to wear masks, the students are required to wear masks, and we are required to give out masks to any students who forgot them. If you require proof of that you can see it plain as day on the bus security feeds. As I don’t want my job put at risk, I’d appreciate being left anonymous.
If you send your name and email address to the Attorney General it’s part of the public record. In fact, this email is published here because of a Missouri Sunshine Law request addressed to the Office of the Attorney General. They complied to the request because it was their only possible response. The Attorney General’s Office did not redact your name or email address. We did. You can thank us later.
Be sure the notification that the mask mandate is dead to healthcare/fitness and sports training centers
(e.g. Club Fitness, Lifetime, Sports medicine and Training Center) and the likes.
Subject: Mask mandate
Please be advised that I have a student at Saint Louis University and the school continues to mandate masks be worn indoors at all times, including the library, classrooms and residential housing common areas. The mask mandate remains in place although the campus also mandates all students be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or risk removal from the university.
It’s so cute that people believe Eric Schmitt (r) would even contemplate taking on Saint Louis University.
Subject: Rockwood Summit
I am writing to let you know of my child [….] who was asked to leave Rockwood Summit High school today at 11:00 by [….] Please tell what my rights are at this time.
Running in the hallway? Just a guess.
Subject: Kearney School District
Hello. I’m not a parent of a child in the Kearney School District. However, I have friends that their children go there. They are still trying to enforce mask mandates on their students and teachers.
You have friends?
I wanted to report that Rockwood schools (specifically the ones in Eureka) are sending older children home and are segregating the younger children in the library and not allowing them to be with their class if they refuse to wear a mask.
How is segregation legal?
In the library? You mean that place with all the books? That would explain the pearl clutching.
You are not doing what is best and safe for children! Pitting kids against their schools for your own agenda should be a crime! If I did that as a teacher, I would be fired. Grow up and protect the people of this state! We are a global pandemic and you are acting like a TODDLER!
“…There are many copies. And they have a plan…”
Subject: Attorney general investigation
Hello. I live in Missouri. Our attorney general is blatantly lying to people about mask mandates that have been legally ordered by our ELECTED shool board. He is trying to get people to take pictures of my son and others at his middle school wearing masks. I hear he wants pictures of elementary students, also. I think that is very creepy/suspicious and that someone should investigate this. Is that something you guys can do? Please let me know.
A simple request (December 9, 2021)
We get a response (December 14, 2021)
We’re still waiting… (December 31, 2021)
