On Friday Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (r) filed lawsuits against a number of Missouri school districts that have rejected his assertion that the school districts cannot enact mitigation efforts during a deadly global pandemic.

Subject: Rockwood School District Segregating my kindergartner for not wearing a mask
Hi Attorney General Schmitt,
We are in the Rockwood School District in Saint Louis County.
I walked my kindergarten daughter into her school today without a mask and your letter in hand. Her principal did initially let her go to class without a mask, but said that she would need to reach out to her district supervisor and then give me a call later. After she spoke with her supervisor she let me know I had three options. I could come pick her up, I could send her back to class with a mask, or I could send her to the library to learn for the rest of the day segregating her from the rest of the class.
My daughter hates masks so much, but still wanted to stay in school so she chose to go to the library to learn for the day. I have an email into the district asking them how they feel they are above the law and how legally they have the right to segregate my healthy child away from her classmates because she refuses to put a mask on her face that is illegal and unconstitutional for them to enforce in the first place.
Our interim superintendent Dr. Ricker responded to your letter yesterday basically by stating that his attorneys assure him that he does not need to follow the law. Another thing that is unique about Rockwood is that our board has never voted on the issue of a mask mandate. Our superintendent has been the only individual making the calls for our entire district.
I appreciate all you are doing to help put the power to parent our kids back into our hands. I look forward to what type of enforcement action you will take against our district and specifically Tim ricker who is the worst of them all.
Additional lawsuits against school districts filed by Eric Schmitt (r) include:
WARRENSBURG R-VI SCHOOL DISTRICT
MINUTES OF BOARD OF EDUCATION REGULAR BOARD MEETING
Tuesday, August 17, 2021, 7:30 P.M.
District Office Conference Room, 201 S. Holden St.
Warrensburg, MO 64093
At 7:56 PM, Board President Mr. Justin Johnson reconvened open session.
Approval of the Safe Return to In-Person and Continuity of Services Plan (SRCSP) The administration and Board discussed the Safe Return to In-Person and Continuity of Services Plan. Input from staff, parents, and patrons aided in the formulation of this Plan. Mr. Gary Grigsby moved with a second by Mr. Tom McCormack to approve the Safe Return to In-Person and Continuity of Services Plan with the addition of the mask threshold metrics and a school year start in Plan A. Vice-President Dr. Scott Chenault asked that a roll call vote be taken.
Aye: Mr. Johnson, Dr. Chenault, Mr. Sergent, Mr. Gary Grigsby, Dr. Julie Lewis, Mr. Tom McCormack, and Dr. Bridgmon. Nay: None. Motion passed.
Unanimous. That’s also called “local control.”
….The information referenced in this Plan is based on district policy EBB, County – Johnson County Community Health Services (JCCHS), State – Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and National – Center for Disease Control (CDC) restrictions, guidelines, and recommendations.
Expertise. How novel.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (r) is a sociopath.
Interestingly, even with the significant number of complaints about masking requirements in private and parochial schools submitted to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address Eric Schmitt (r) doesn’t appear to have filed lawsuits against them. Why would that be the case?
Attorney General Eric Schmitt (r) didn’t need to open up his state funded “snitch on your local schools” email address. His office could have simply visited school district web sites and/or directly requested information. Aside from involving individuals in his U.S. Senate primary campaign publicity stunt, his actions damage the relationships between the community and their local school teachers, school administrators, and elected community school boards.
They have a plan.
