Happy 10th Day of School! (Emailed on Friday, August 13th, 2021)

Good afternoon from East Cobb! I am following up on the multitude of emails I've sent you since the first day of school on August 2nd, to which I have received zero responses. Today, I gave you time for coffee and lunch, so let’s dive right in. 

I was made aware that Mr. Banks was still responding to emails, but with a more subdued vibe. A little less Q Anon, a little more automated reply. I’m glad someone spoke to him about keeping the racism inside. 

Anyhow, I’m still not 100% convinced that y’all aren’t on a party cruise in the Caribbean. You failed to make an appearance at our mask rally yesterday, which is a shame. We were eager to speak to you about your inability to make a decision based on the CDPH department’s COVID guidelines. You would have also enjoyed the gentleman that drove from Pickens county, with no skin in the game, to counterprotest. He seemed like your “people”. 

New since the last time I emailed into the echo chamber of the Cobb County School District email server... The number of cases in our schools topped 800, of which I’m sure is underreported. We are definitely neck and neck with Florida and Texas in this race to the bottom of humanity.  

Fulton County announced maskless school centers. This really piqued my interest. Picture this: the hazy smoking room at Hartsfield. Everyone guiltily taking deep drags on their cigs and breathing out cancerous fumes. All while inhaling each other’s smoky seconds. So this, but COVID. Look, I’m all about protecting our community, but if this satiates the “freedom” fighters, I’m all in. Especially if it keeps my two sweet boys safe, healthy, and in class with their teachers. 

Please don’t let your pride interfere with basic human decency. It’s past time to do the right thing. We've already created significant community viral spread over the past two weeks of this failed science experiment.  If none of this implores you to update your mask policy, please think of the exhausted doctors and nurses in our community that will have to come along in our wake and fix this preventable mess. I know you can do it! We will still applaud you for your common sense and bravery, although maybe with a little less enthusiasm as this is getting exhausting.

I’m sure you are busy cranking up the ol’ CTLS but I'll be here, anxiously awaiting your response. 

As always, thank you for reading. 

Mrs. Yoy
