My eldest is turning five in the fall, and will be entering kindergarten in September. She currently attends an outdoor based preschool, and will be entering public school for K.

As a family, we mask in public indoor spaces (grocery store, doctors, Gymboree, etc.), but our daughter does not mask for preschool because she is outside 90 percent of the time.

Obviously, this won’t be the case in kindergarten. I would like her to try to wear a mask at school next year. I am concerned she is going to bring back COVID to our elderly parents.

Does anyone have children in early elementary this year who sent them to school in a mask? How did they manage it? Was it a problem if they were the only one masked?

(Not looking for a debate on masks, or to shame anyone who are making different decisions)
