Many school districts across the Commonwealth of Virginia have decided to ignore Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s executive order making mask mandates optional.
Students in Henrico who showed up unmasked were either forced into isolation or required to wear plexiglass, according to local reports.
“To hear that he’s been corralled into the auditorium separated, segregated from his classmates, for exercising his right to not wear a mask in this environment is is frustrating, and it’s upsetting,” Rachael Kulak told television station WTVR.
Chesterfield County freshman Nathaniel Peake walked into Clover Hill High School without his mask Monday. His mom Tonia Peake said he declined a mask from the school, so he was given plexiglass to take with him to each of his classes, the television station reported.
“He sent me a text at around 8:30 this morning that said, ‘boxed in, still smiling.’ So, I think he’s just happy to be able to breathe,” Tonia said.

“Anyone who wants to be masked or adopt any mitigation strategies, by all means, do it,” added Tonia. “Do what you need to do to feel safe. But you may not compel other parents to adopt the same strategies for their kids. That’s against the law. So, I hope the Supreme Court will rule this week that that’s what the law says.”
