Blessing for the Children
by Laurie Peterson Benson
May you remember
when you can't remember,
that third grade wasn't
about a virus,
and that you, of yourself
are not someone that
needs to be held
at arm's length.
May you recall
the moment you knew,
with the heart of
that everything you did
was because of
connection. And now,
changed your story.
And may you begin
next year, and so many
next years, with hope
as you believe that
this time isn't
And may you remember,
if you can't remember,
that you, of yourself
CONGRATULATIONS to our
TEACHER AWARD WINNERS!

The Utah Legislature passed House Bill 294 in March. Most people are familiar with the part of the bill that says the state can no longer require masks in most public places after April 10.
But the mask requirement stays in place for K-12 schools until June 15. Local officials, like a school board or county council, do NOT have the legal authority to end the mask requirement in schools before this date. Public health officials asked the Legislature (and the Legislature agreed) to keep a mask requirement in place for the following reasons:
- No vaccine is currently authorized for anyone younger than 16.
- Not every adult in the school setting has been vaccinated.
- Children can get sick from COVID and have long-term effects.
- Children can get COVID, not feel sick, and transmit the illness to people at home who aren’t vaccinated yet.
Schools are planning in-person proms, activities, and graduations, which can only happen if we continue to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Wearing masks is one of the easiest and best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We should continue wearing masks until more people have a chance to get vaccinated, including children and teens. School districts should continue to work with their local health departments to ensure the health and safety of all of Utah’s school aged children.
